People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

“Designer babies, the latest accessory that every woman must have,” user WuLei34 sarcastically wrote, reported Metro.

“I wonder what she will do when the straps break on her handbag?” wondered user LucyX.

Hsueh quickly defended herself, noting that her baby was only in the bag for a quick picture and that she was actually making a joke about what it would be like if child care were left up to men. She says she only posted the picture because she thought it was funny and claims that her 9-month-old son was enjoying himself.

Do you think this mom went too far?
