Angela Rye has time today. The CNN political commentator took to Instagram Jan. 8 to disclose her issue with an Adidas cleats ad featuring Premier League star Paul Pogba.

“Where’s the shoe?” Rye wondered about the ad featuring the soccer star that she saw as racist. “Do you understand that PREDATOR has a negative connotation particularly when we are talking about the perception of Black people in the world? This is irresponsible and NOT well thought out.”

Her stance follows backlash at H&M for it’s ad featuring a Black boy in a hoodie reading, “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle.”
