UK company Tesco is facing some backlash for it's minute-long holiday commercial this year. The commercial features snippets of various people gearing up to celebrate the holidays. Among the groups of families featured is a Muslim family, some members of which are wearing hijabs.

"THEY DON'T INTEGRATE ENOUGH!"
"WHY ARE THEY INTEGRATING?"
Make your mind up, Susan..
Just when you thought this country couldn’t get any more desperately fucking moronic, there are people boycotting Tesco for featuring a Muslim family in their Christmas ad😐— Healosh (@Healosh) November 11, 2017
Sheesh! I don't think I would have noticed there was a 'Muslim' family had it not been pointed out. Aren't they allowed to eat turkey or enjoy Christmas then? Gah!— StarlightMcKenzie (@StarlightMcKenz) November 11, 2017

What is it you think we do on 25th December?
Seeing as all family members are off at the same time, it's nice to get together for a meal, we've always watched the TV specials too,— Rocciana (@Rocciana5) November 11, 2017

Tesco featured a Muslim family celebrating Christmas
A brazenly False representation of Muslims
Are you prepared to boycott Tesco?
Everyone is welcome at Tesco this Christmas and we're proud to celebrate the many ways our customers come together over the festive season. Tesco will celebrate the many ways we come together at Christmas, and how food sits at the heart of it all.
