Microsoft Pulls Ad Featuring ‘Spirit Cooker’ Marina Abramovic After Backlash

Microsoft pulled a new ad featuring famed “Spirit Cooker” Marina Abramovic after getting huge backlash over the weekend on social media.

The ad, titled “Marina Abramovic Presents ‘The Life’ in Mixed Reality,” featured a “mixed” reality “art” exhibit whereby Abramovic’s image was viewed by onlookers through a mixed reality headset which projects images onto a pair of glasses.

Abramovic was brought into the public spotlight in 2016 after leaked emails from Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta showed Abramovic emailing John’s brother Tony to ask if John would be joining them for a “Spirit Cooking dinner.”
