When I first read this on necolebitchie.com I was like 0_O…Apparently Naomi and her mother are fuming about her being compared to chocolate in a recent Cadbury chocolate advert that reads “Move over Naomi, there’s a new diva in town”.

Naomi is so offended by the ad which she claims is racist that she is suing the company and boycott the Cadbury ad.

“I am shocked. It’s upsetting to be described as chocolate, not just for me, but for all black women and black people. I do not find any humour in this. It is insulting and hurtful.”
It’s been reported that Cadbury have pulled the ad back…with their spokesperson saying the following:
“[The ad is] a light-hearted take on the social pretensions of Cadbury Dairy Milk Bliss[…]We would never produce any type of marketing we felt might cause any offence to any section of society[…][The ad is] no longer in circulation[…]We have no plans to repeat the campaign.”
I personally wouldn’t be so offended about being compared to chocolate, unless I have issues with my race/colour of my skin. Come on now Naomi, is this really enough to want to sue cadbury???

Well, that’s how I feel, how would you feel being compared to chocolate, caramel or vanilla?

From your girl Allegro Dinkwanyane- “I’m just saying”, so have your say…

 

Is this ad racist or not?
