Lil Wayne Super Bowl Commercial

by at .

Lil Wayne and Jeff Goldblum will star in a commercial set to air during Super Bowl 50 that people are not reacting to in the same way as they are reacting to Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen promoting Bud Light.

Viewers are finding the latter ad to be funny.

But some are finding the latter to be racist.

A commercial for Apartments.com, the footage is set to The Jeffersons' famous theme song, "Movin on Up."

It features Goldblum as a “Silicon Valley Maverick” who is sitting on top of a grand piano as he rises higher and higher along the skyline, making his way to a deluxe apartment.

Once he reached the top of the building, Goldblum comes across George Washington and Lil Wayne, the latter of whom tells Goldblum's character he's "flame-broilin' some burgers" for the big game.

No big deal, right? Weird, but maybe sort of funny?

Not according to those who have labeled it as "low-key racist," per TMZ, because it implies that Lil Wayne is George Washington's slave.

A source close to the rapper, however, tells the site that the commercial is "meant to be funny and not the least bit offensive."

In short, "people need to calm down," this insider adds.

Lil Wayne Quotes

Lil Wayne: I don't do too many [drugs]. I just smoke weed and drink. But I'll never fuck with no more coke. It's not about the bad high; it's just about the acne: Cocaine makes your face break out. I'm a pretty boy.

The world is about to end in 2012… ’cause the Mayans made calendars, and they stop at 2012. I got encyclopedias on the bus. The world is about to end as we know it. You can see it already. A planet doesn't exist - there's no more Pluto. Planes are flying into buildings - and not just the Twin Towers. Mosquitos bite you and you die. And a black man and a woman are running for president.
