In an ad, a black woman becomes white using Dove: the brand apologizes
“A picture we recently posted on Facebook missed its goal of representing women of color,” Unilever
said on Twitter. “We deeply regret the harm caused by this publicity.
“We will opt for a better brand that is not racist”
A makeup artist shared the photo on Facebook Friday, stating that she had appeared in her “news stream” on the social network.
The reactions continued to fuse after Dove’s apology. “We do not need your apologies and we will opt for a better brand that is not racist! Bye,” wrote a Twitter user.
