Snickers is sparking some not-so-sweet controversy over a new ad

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) -   There's no arguing about it, Snickers bars are delicious. But the candy is running into some not-so-sweet controversy over a new ad.

Take a look...

Even though the Ad aims to be progressive, many people commenting online are saying it still reinforces the harmful stereotype of construction workers yelling at women.

Policy Mic writes of it, "On the one hand, the women in the advertisement are naïve props shocked that men would ever treat them with respect...On the other, the men are portrayed as presumably idiotic, disgusting and flat-out predatorial in their natural state."
