Not offensive. But obnoxious

Well, unless your Paperwhite was a gift, you bought the Kindle with ads so you're the one who chose to purchase the Kindle with ads.

You can go to your Manage Your Kindle page, then Manage Your Devices, and you'll be able to edit your subscription to the special offers. You'll have to pay the difference in cost because you got a discount with your Kindle with the ads.

Go to Your Account -> Manage Your Kindle -> Manage Your Devices (on the computer) and unsubscribe from Special Offers on the Paperwhite.

You will have to pay for the difference between the ad-supported version and the non-ad-supported version, as the ads made your Paperwhite cheaper to begin with.

(ETA: what asortafairytale says - sorry, was posting at the same time!)

Unless you spend a lot of time staring at the screen, without opening a book, you should hardly notice the ads. If the biggest problem in your life is ads on the home screen, you lead a charmed life, and deserve no sympathy. If you find such ads offensive, wait until someone tries to kill you for being the wrong skin color, or wrong religion. Then you'll know what offensive truly is. Get a life, and quit whining.
