Coca-Cola has launched a "diversity campaign" aimed at celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan in Norway.

 Coca-Cola is known to roll out Ramadan campaigns in Muslim-majority nations, but this is the first time the corporation has marked the Islamic month of fasting in traditionally Christian Norway, where an estimated 5.7 percent of the country’s 5.2 million inhabitants are Muslim.

 The campaign features the iconic Coca-Cola logo adorned with a crescent moon, an important symbol in Islam.

 RT report: The marketing manager for Coca-Cola Norway told Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet that the company wanted to take a firm stance on the importance of celebrating diversity.

“Diversity and inclusion have always been important to Coca-Cola. For example, many do not know that in the 1950s we were actively engaged in the civil rights movement. Cola was the first to front women in advertising campaigns,” Johanna Kosanovic said.

“Islam is not welcome or wanted in beautiful Norway. Go to an Islamic country with this c**p. Try marketing Christian holidays there,” one user wrote in response to a “Happy Ramadan” message posted on Coca-Cola Norway’s Instagram account.

“Then it’ll be Pepsi from here onwards… I hope Coca-Cola sales plunge,” a dissatisfied cola drinker noted on Facebook.

“No more Cola. Yuck!” another social media user declared.

Others were more supportive of the move, however.

“I Doubt Coke needs racist money,” one fan of the campaign wrote on Facebook.

 Others said they would pass on the infamously unhealthy beverage – regardless of what religious labels are put on Coke cans.

Coca Cola in Norway is launching a new campaign to celebrate Ramadan.

They even got a new logo for the campaign with a crescent moon!

"We want to show our clear support for diversity" says the company's marketing chief in Norway.

 Corporations have faced backlash in the past for trying to show that they are inclusive or “woke.” A “feminist” Reebok ad in Russia featuring bizarre “face-sitting” was widely panned, while Gillette learned a hard lesson in social media blowback after lecturing to its male customer base about “toxic masculinity.”

I wouldn't run out and buy Pepsi.

"No matter how tired you are or how much your decaffeinated zombie body can’t function, nothing beats a good o’l Ramadan gathering! We just love the laughs, the 2afashat, the gossip; oh we just love it all! But with all the love, some things change. People come and go. The only thing that’s always been constant every Ramadan, and throughout our whole lives really, is Pepsi. It’s there at every Iftar, Sohour, outing and even family and friends’ gatherings at home. Besides, they have the coolest ads. That’s why we all eagerly wait for their annual Ramadan campaigns."   identity-mag.com/get-closer-to-your-crowd-with-pepsi-this-ramadan/

 When I have the chance to look into this I will, thank you for sharing.
