AFLAC sued by the ACLU
The ACLU along with the NAACP and La Raza filed a joint discrimination law suit against The American Family Life Assurance Company, also known as AFLAC for the continual use of a white duck to promote their company. They stated that AFLAC was being Racist and was not reflecting the true racial makeup of America. The ACLU submitted a side by side photo comparison, that of the current Duck and a more appropriate multi-cultural colored Duck. AFLAC refused to comment. An unofficial source told ABC News that in a effort to improve their image they did make a commercial with their duck break dancing to rap music and handing out free money.
