Dove is SLAMMED on social media for advertisement of a black woman taking off her shirt and skin and becoming a white woman

I guess the idea was that using a Dove beauty bar to wash yourself will make you beautiful -- with beauty represented by whiteness.  But the worldwide beauty ideal IS white.  Musn't mention that, though

Soap Company Dove is facing a wave of criticism after an advert they posted of a black woman seemingly taking off her shirt and skin to become a white woman went viral.

In the now deleted picture, the four-panel shot shows a black woman in a chocolate brown shirt taking it off and revealing herself to be a white woman in a off-white shirt.

The add also features a third panel of another woman but in the now heavily circulated pic, that is not included.

After make-up artist Naomi Leann Blake first shared the now viral photo to which the company took to their social media to apologize.

'Dove is committed to representing the beauty of diversity,' the company said on Facebook.

'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.'

They also took to Twitter to try to ease the anger felt by many.

But social media wasn't having it and hated the apology, blasting the company for its insensitivity following a similar incident by hair care company Shea Moisture in April.

This is just another invented racial nontroversy. Notice that in order to create this load of nonsense they had to cut out half the commercial. They stopped it when the Black woman turned into the White woman. They did not show the rest of it. These large companies need to grow some cojones and tell the SJW's to fuck off. Only then will stuff like this stop.

I guess Micheal Jackson's video where he morf's into people of different races must also then be racist.
