A recent Dove commercial has caused social media outcry over its racial undertones.
The three-second video clip which was posted on Dove’s U.S. Facebook page last Friday showed a black woman removing her top to reveal a white woman, who then lifted her own top to reveal another woman.
Some social media users have compared the AD to soap advertisements from the 19th century or early 20th century that showed black people scrubbing their skin to become white.
Dove has removed the clip and apologized, saying on Twitter that the post had “missed the mark in representing women of colour thoughtfully.”
