Calls for Controversial Betting Ad To Be Banned 16 May 2017 Share on Tumblr Sportsbet have come under fire for a controversial new ad campaign featuring disgraced former Olympian Ben Johnson.

Johnson won an Olympic gold medal at the 1988 Olympic Games in Soul and lowered his world record in the process, but was stripped of both after he tested positive to a banned substance. The Canadian sprinter later admitted that he was taking steroids when he set a world record in 1987.

That hasn’t stopped him from heading up Sportsbet's new campaign which has sent social media into a frenzy. The ad features Johnson and a stack of other “endorsers,” including a “juiced” up Chinese swimmers, cyclist and weightlifter.
