A sign reading "Robbinghood Fraud" hangs on a pole in front of the headquarters for trading app Robinhood on February 01, 2021 in Menlo Park, California. Robinhood announced on Monday that it has raised $3.4 billion amid a trading frenzy in the past week.

If you haven't yet seen the recently-posted Robinhood ad on social media or worse, on your own television; congratulations to you.

A lot of people on different social media platforms are now voicing out against Robinhood, for what seemed to be a slap on the face for normal people investors.

In December, Robinhood locked in a spot as one of the advertisers in the much-awaited event of Super Bowl. Not to think that they'd be having the headlines over the GameStop drama.

Today, the world witnessed the 30-second commercial, all over the United States of America. Here's the Robinhood advertisement:

The ad showcases a snippets of various lives of normal people; whether at the cafe, bar, their own homes, etc. Then, the last seconds of the video, a narrator says that, "You don't need to become an investor, we are born one," while flashing a text on the screen saying the tagline, "We are all investors."

What people says to the ad

The Securities and Exchange Commission has charged Silicon Valley start-up company Robinhood with deceiving customers about how the company makes money. The company has agreed to pay a $65 million civil penalty.

Of course, the impact of the advertisement isn't what Robinhood expected. Instead of calming all that was affected with the GameStop drama, it triggered an even larger backlash to its investors.
