After numerous complaints about Toyota “Deaf Dumb and Blind Kid” in Supra lyrics after the Super Bowl commercial, Toyota issued a formal apology. But many in the deaf and blind community are still upset that the commercial is still running.

“As a company, Toyota believes in respect for and inclusive treatment for all people. “Pinball Wizard” provided a relevant soundtrack for the Supra in its virtual pinball environment. Our intent for the ad was to be a source of entertainment and we apologize to anyone who may have been offended.”

So the question we have for you is: should @toyota take the commercial down?
