Remember when Katy Perry dressed up in a racist geisha costume at the American Music Awards? Apprently, Air France thought that was a good idea, because the airline’s new ad campaign features a white model dressed up in yellowface. 

Criticism surrounding the ad lead to the #FixedItUAF hashtag on Twitter, kicked off by Wall Street Journal columnist Jeff Yang. The hashtag invites users to make their own mock ads, and some of them are brilliant. Take a look.
