Dove apologises for 'racist' Facebook advertising campaign
Dove has apologised after releasing a series of "Racist" images that appeared to show a black woman turning white after using their soap. The Facebook advertising campaign used a series of three images, showing a black woman peeling off her T-shirt to reveal a white woman underneath her skin. A third image shows the white woman undressing to reveal an Asian woman. In 2011, Dove was accused of racism for using a before and after image that appeared to place three women on a colour gradient, with the lightest woman suggested as the end result. "Dove added later in a statement:"This did not represent the diversity of real beauty which is something Dove is passionate about and is core to our beliefs, and it should not have happened.
