Newsweekly Halts Sponsored Posts After Criticism of Asian Mail-Order Bride Ad

From a story on by Zachary Schermele headlined “Following criticism of Asian mail-order bride ad, newsweekly halts sponsored posts”:

The Austin Chronicle, a popular alternative weekly newspaper in Texas, has issued a moratorium on all sponsored content amid a slew of criticism over a since-removed ad promoting Asian mail-order brides.

The ad, posted to the Chronicle’s website as sponsored content, included links to several websites claiming to connect customers to tens of thousands of Asian women. It also ranked five countries for having the “best” Asian brides and included racist and misogynistic statements describing Asian women’s appearances and gender roles.
