Microsoft Slammed For Sexist Xbox One Ad

Can one of you guys point out what is so "insanely" sexist and offensive about this customizable letter from Microsoft? Has no one seen the awesome "boyfriend, get me a beer" ad?

Microsoft has apologized for the wording in this ad and is currently taking steps to change it. The company sent the following statement to Eurogamer: "The letter is fully customizable and we meant no offense, but understand how the defaults could be perceived. We're making changes to the letter defaults and apologize for the oversight."
