personal care brand Dove, found itself in a social media storm after releasing
a series of images that that showed a black woman turning white after using its
soap. Dove took down the advert after angry social media users labelled it
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.
We have removed the post and have not published any other content. We do not
condone any activity or imagery that insults any audience. Our richness lies in
our diversity. Our beauty comes in different shapes‚ sizes‚ hair textures and
skin tones. We believe beauty is diverse and diversity is beautiful‚" Dove
