Sacreligious

I'm not into politically correct BS but lately an ad has gone too far. To me it's sacreligious. Here is the ad that was recently pulled by a cruise line:






Unfortunately they only pulled the ad because they were caught not because they were sorry for a sacreligious ad depicting one of our warriors who became king in a very unfavorable ad. I don't like it but at least many Hawaiians made noise because this is simply sacreligious. I know that some people don't understand the significance of Kamehameha but this isn't politically correctness gone awry. Instead this is respect in corporate America gone awry. I don't blame Americans. It's corporate America.
