Dove can’t undo its ‘remarkably racist’ ad, and nobody is accepting its apology

Wow Dove. WOW!!!

To anyone looking for a job in marketing, Dove may be hiring very soon.

The tidal wave of criticism the soap company has faced after releasing a picture via Facebook of a black woman taking off her brown shirt and seemingly turning into a ‘spotlessly clean,’ er, white woman, likely has heads rolling.

The four-panel shot has since been deleted and replaced by an apology from the soap company after make-up artist Naomi Leann Blake first shared the now-viral photo, unleashing the first volley of criticism, according to Daily Mail.

A third panel that includes another woman isn’t included in the viral picture.

“Dove is committed to representing the beauty of diversity,” reads the company Facebook apology. “In an image we posted this week, we missed the mark in thoughtfully representing women of color and we deeply regret the offense that it has caused. The feedback that has been shared is important to us and we’ll use it to guide us in the future.”

Finally! Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to his NFL players: Disrespect the flag and you’re benched!

They also apologized via Twitter:

Naturally, Dove received scathing criticism via social media, many of which compared Dove’s insensitivity to attempts by other companies in other eras to portray people of color as somehow ‘dirty’ because of the color of their skin.

 

And to make matters worse for the soap company, nobody was buying Dove’s apology…

 

For once, we’ve gotta go with Piers Morgan here.
