‘Zero tolerance’: Belgian migration minister slammed for taking ‘racist’ ad as compliment

The Belgian minister for migration and asylum, Theo Francken, has been slammed for reposting a satirical advertisement featuring himself arresting an undocumented migrant in, let’s just say, quite an unconventional way.

The caricature advertisement showed the minister’s face pasted over the body of a policeman who was swooping in on a chopper to arrest a migrant by putting a suction cup on a black man’s head. He is then brought into the helicopter afterwards. The video is concluded by a ‘Zero Tolerance’ tagline, apparently referring to diet Coke.

“Look what I found, zero tolerance, it’s amusing,” Francken posted, as quoted by Belgian media outlet RTBF.
