America's most controversial financial company, Robinhood, sets the blazing fire again. This was after the company airs its stock advertisement with a tagline, "we are all investors," in the Super Bowl LV sports event.
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:
We believe investing is for everyone. Celebrate the investor in you. pic.twitter.com/kEqqtoIOOk— Robinhood (@RobinhoodApp) February 8, 2021
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."
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.

I don't give af what you "believe". You backed the 1% at the top when the bottom 99% needed you to have our back the most. That act, frankly, is unforgivable. Kick rocks with no shoes or socks.— Xenofurys (@Xenofurys) February 8, 2021
For everyone? Except normal investors when they’re hurting billionaires— Andrew✌🏻 (@Apoww99) February 8, 2021
Paid millions for a commercial, but their customers couldn't buy stock because they didn't have cash to cover.... seems legit.— John Wright (@Derringer_30) February 8, 2021
Robinhood is actively under investigation for multiple criminal and civil offenses including manipluating the market and preventing it's customers from actively trading at their own discretion.— Just Breezin' (@DavidRi29119131) February 8, 2021
