  • Delta Air Lines Coca Cola apologize for ‘creepy’ napkins

One of the napkins said "Be a little old school". Write your number down and give it to your plane crush.

Twitter users posted photos of the so-called creepy napkins, which, in addition to a weirdly suggestive, pick-up line style tag, have a spot for passengers to write down their personal phone numbers to then pass to another passenger.

The napkins, which featured Diet Coke logos, were printed on one side with the words, "because you're on a plane full of interesting people and hey... you never know", and instructions on the other side reading, "be a little old school, write down your number and give it to your plane crush".

"Creepy AF", one Twitter user posted.

Delta reportedly acknowledged that it missed the mark with this one. "We worked with our partners at Delta to begin removing the napkins last month and are replacing them with other designs", a spokesperson for Coca-Cola said in a statement. You never know.' another says. In March, Heineken had to apologize for its "sometimes lighter is better" beer ad, which critics called racist because a light beer slides across the bar, bypassing several black people, until arriving in front of a lighter-skinned woman. And just this week, some viewers called T-Mobile's Super Bowl advertisements sexist because they feature annoying women.

Reaction: Some social media members thought the napkins were creepy. The netizen also found the napkins "creepy as f*ck".

However, not all passengers were troubled by the napkins, with some people coming to their defense. "Not a good look", @ducksauz wrote. "But don't you know it's practically illegal to flirt these days?"

Payal Lohia added: '@Delta thanks for helping us #single out! can you ship me a box of these napkins so i can use them everywhere, while i sip my @CocaCola?
