BBC Wales Forced To Pull Six Nations Advert After Furious Reaction

It seems the BBC have made a bit of an error in judgement with their latest piece of promotional work for the Six Nations.

Posted on BBC Wales’ social media accounts on Wednesday evening, the advert in question showed several Welsh fans being asked the question; what’s good about England?

In response, a puzzled expression spread across the faces of each and every fan questioned as they sat there in confused silence, searching for an answer.

Obviously made in attempt to wind up English supporters, it seems BBC Wales crossed the line for far too many and the video was removed on Thursday. Having been initially reported on by Wales Online, the Welsh publication also claim that the BBC have asked that no one circulate the video itself now that it has been removed.

Check out some of the furious reaction to the advert below;
