Delta, Coke Blasted Over New Napkins

Delta Coca Cola apologize after 'plane crush' napkins creep out passengers

On the back of each napkin are spaces to write a name and phone number.

"Because you're on a plane full of interesting people and hey... you never know".

"These napkins are creepy AF", one passenger posted to Twitter.

Delta and Coca-Cola, from their end, have since apologized for "missing the mark" and causing anyone offense, as per INSIDER on February 7 (Feb. 6 in the United States).

"We rotate Coke products regularly as part of our brand partnership, but we missed the mark with this one", a Delta spokesperson was quoted as saying. "We worked with our partners at Delta to begin removing the napkins last month and are replacing them with other designs", it said.

What's so offensive about a napkin, you might ask? In October, an Australian hotel apologized for an ad featuring a man and woman eating breakfast in bed, which was called sexist because the man was reading a financial newspaper whereas the woman dug her nose into a Chanel coffee-table book. And just this week, some viewers called T-Mobile's Super Bowl advertisements sexist because they feature annoying women.

GM rebounds with $8.1 billion profit on strong pricing
GM made $10.8 billion before taxes in North America, meaning big profit-sharing checks for about 46,500 union workers in the U.S. The company plans to eliminate about 6,000 factory worker jobs by closing three auto assembly plants and two other factories.

Coca Cola and Delta are in apology mode after what was meant to be a breezy napkin collaboration encouraging airline passengers to connect has incited a growing social media discussion.

The companies have pulled Diet Coke napkins (see them here) that encouraged people to write down their phone number on them and hand them to their "plane crush", reports Fox News. "Not a good look".

Passengers who were disturbed by the napkins' suggestion took to Twitter to express their concerns.

However, not all passengers were troubled by the napkins, with some people coming to their defense. "But don't you know it's practically illegal to flirt these days? Sad world, but nice try & not #creepy".

While another passenger thanked the airline for "helping us singles out".

"The opposite of romantic", she wrote.
