Skincare brand, Dove lambasted over ‘racist’ Facebook ad

The Skincare brand, Dove has apologized for a Facebook ad accused of ‘whitewashing’ a black woman. The ad, which shows a woman changing from black to white after using a Dove product, has sparked outrage and accusations of racism.

The images show a black woman wearing a brown t-shirt who removes her top and transforms into a white woman in a cream t-shirt. The white woman then turns into an Asian woman after she removes her t-shirt. The Asian woman’s t-shirt is a darker beige colour than the white woman’s.

The images are part of a Facebook advertising campaign for the company.
