This Is Why Jennifer Aniston And Victoria Beckham’s Super Bowl Ad Wound Up Sparking Controversy

Jennifer Aniston and Victoria Beckham in their UberEats ad campaign

Jennifer Aniston and Victoria Beckham’s ad for Uber Eats may have been the starriest during this year’s Super Bowl broadcast, but not everyone was so impressed by it.

The commercial – which also features appearances from Victoria’s husband David Beckham and Jen’s former Friends co-star David Schwimmer, as well as musicians Usher and Jelly Roll – centred around different people who had forgotten key things in their life.

This includes one man who apparently “forgot” that he was intolerant to peanut butter, as he was seen experiencing an allergic reaction including hives and facial swelling.

After the ad debuted, the awareness charity Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) wrote on X that they were “incredibly disappointed” by Uber Eats’ “use of life-threatening food allergies as humour in its Super Bowl ad”.

“Life-threatening food allergy is a disease, not a diet. Enough is enough,” they added.
