A survey of 151 respondents from Malaysia was conducted in March 2009. A questionnaire examining the attitudes towards a series of potentially controversial/offensive products and reasons advertisement being offensive was constructed. Data were collected from university students in Klang Valley. The research indicates that there is significant difference in attitudes towards offensive advertisement among gender, religion and level of education and their effect of Brand Loyalty & Purchase Intention.
