Dove Apologizes for Racially Insensitive Facebook Advertisement

by Kalhan Rosenblatt

Soap company Dove has apologized for a racially insensitive Facebook ad it said "missed the mark in representing women of color thoughtfully."

The advertisement, apparently for some sort of soap but which has since been deleted, showed a black woman wearing a brown shirt removing her top to reveal a white woman in a lighter top. A third image shows the white woman removing her shirt to show a woman of apparently Asian descent.

On Saturday, Dove, which is owned by Dutch-British transnational consumer goods company Unilever, issued an apology on its Twitter page for the advertisement.

How could they create an ad like that and not know it was going to piss a lot of people off?

I’m not sure how the hell they would think that would be a good idea.

You would think that a company like Dove would have asked themselves, is this going to offend anyone? before the released the ad.

Just about anything you post, release is going to offend one group or another nowadays, people need to put their big boy/girl pants on and STFU.
