RoboVac Says Racist Ad Only Meant For Stubborn Maids


KUALA LUMPUR:  Today RoboVac Malaysia Pro Unit Serial#45693847 did its best to reassure angered Indonesians and 1Malaysians that its robots were actually not suggesting a nationwide ban on Indonesian Maids after a controversial advertisement caused outrage in both countries.

“When we advertised that you should ‘Fire Your Indonesian Maid,’ we meant it to only apply to stubborn maids who would like to be respected as human beings instead of crawling on the floor all day like cleaning robots,” it said.

Serial#45693847 confirmed the racist advertising campaign has since been withdrawn, after confused RoboVac customers were expecting the units to cook meals, wash cars, babysit children and work Sundays.
