A black friday ad has got rid of the food ads on Google News
Posted July 06, 2019 15:14:03A food ad on Google news has been replaced by an ad for a black fridays brand.
Google News was one of the first news services in the world to integrate a blackfriday ad into its content in 2016, but the ad has been removed since then.
Google had launched an ad campaign for Black Friday in 2015 to promote its brand of black fridges.
However, Google did not have a dedicated black frays ad, and instead used ads for other brands in the news section.
In the ad, a man walks down a black Friday shopping spree and sees a Black Friday billboard that advertises a brand of food called The Black Friday.
“It’s a black holiday, right?” the man asks, before a video shows a woman eating a frozen chicken breast.
The ad has now been removed from Google News, with the Google News team saying that it was not the first time a food ad was removed.
“This is not a case of an ad being removed for a non-food reason, but rather a case where a company decided to remove its advertising for a brand for non-commercial reasons,” Google’s India media director Gautam Mehta told Quartz.
The company also said that it has removed a similar ad on a different news service, the Hindustan Times, after a complaint.
The move to ban the ad comes a month after India’s top court banned Google News ads on the grounds that the ads violated Indian law, but Google has argued that the court’s decision was “irrelevant” because Google News does not have any adverts on the news platform.
“We are happy to see the decision of the Indian Supreme Court on this matter and we will appeal against the decision,” the Google spokesperson said in an email.
The Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI) has not yet taken a position on whether the ad was offensive or not.
The council has previously found that Google’s decision to remove the ad violated a non commercial rule.
A similar decision by the council was also challenged by Indian media outlets, who said that the ruling would allow Google News to continue to run advertisements.
