Castle Lager has announced that it will be selling beer without labels on the bottles to stand in solidarity with “all those who are unfairly and callously labeled on a daily basis.”
The beer producing giant tweeted a bottle without labels and says the “small act is a pledge that Castle Lager will work towards eradicating the labels that divide us.”
They hash tagged Ashwin Willemse in the tweet. This is after Willemse walked off the set of a live show on SuperSport on Saturday in protests to being patronised and being labelled a quota player.
In light of recent events, we’ve decided to lose our label* in solidarity with all those who are unfairly and callously labeled on a daily basis. This small act is a pledge that Castle Lager will work towards eradicating the labels that divide us. #SmashTheLabel #AshwinWillemse pic.twitter.com/k3y17cUxdQ
