After criticism from all around, the hospital has issued an apology for using Morgan Freeman’s photo. While talking to Indian Express, Vadakara Cooperative hospital marketing head T Sunil said, “A dermatologist joined our Out Patient Department recently. In order to publicize that there are skincare treatment facilities at the hospital, the board was installed and kept there for four days. A local designer created it. Due to a lack of knowledge and seriousness, the board was carelessly installed in front of the OPD. A person inquired why Nelson Mandela’s photo was printed for the ad. After that, we removed it on Saturday.” For the unversed, Freeman had essayed the character of Mandela in Invictus.

T Sunil further added, “The ad went viral on social media by Sunday. We extended our apology on Facebook. We understand that Freeman is a great artist, admired by many people across the world. We sincerely say sorry for the lack of knowledge.”

Ever since the advertisement went viral on social media, many netizens are tagging Morgan Freeman and urged him to take action against the hospital.
