Naomi Campbell Calls Cadbury Advertisement ‘Racist’

A new advertisement for Cadbury Chocolate’s Bliss bars reads, ” Move over Naomi, there’s a new diva in town.” Naomi Campbell took offense, calling the advertisement racist and saying, “It’s upsetting to be described as chocolate, not just for me, but for all black women and black people.”

She told the Independent newspaper, “I’m deeply upset by this racist advert. Do these people think they can insult black people and we just take it? This is the 21st century, not the 1950s. Shame on Cadbury.”
Cadbury responded by pulling the ad, and released a statement saying, “Cadbury takes its responsibility very seriously indeed and we would never produce any marketing activity we felt might cause offence to any section of society.”
