GAP's "Revolution" banner on Facebook

Postby ExplorerWannaBe » Sun Aug 14, 2011 3:16 pm

I just now saw GAP's "Revolution" banner on their Facebook page. Frankly, I'm offended. There is a lot of turmoil around the world right now and not all revolutions are good or have favorable consequences. Use of the upraised fist symbology -- so evocative of armed Marxist uprisings under Che Guevara and others -- is something I find revolting (pun intended).

I love GAP and the tours it offers. I love that your tours are different. I do NOT love this banner.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll make sure that your comments make it to the marketing folks. I agree that logo can be controversial.
