Outrage at US Embassy Cartoon in Romania

An attempt to stop the Visa Lottery frauds has backfired for the US Embassy in Romania. It was not the idea, but the way it was performed. The diplomats posted an animated film on Facebook, one that was supposed to explain to Romanians how the lottery system works and how to avoid being scammed.

The animation, unfortunately, was made out in a language suitable for 5 years olds – not for adults. Using fables with characters like the “Bear”, the “Vixen” and the “Fisherman”, in terms even primary school children would describe as basic, the animation explains to Romanians how to apply without the risk of losing money and time.
Many Romanians are outraged at the language used and think the US Embassy has insulted the nation.
