A few days ago, an advert for a detergent surfaced online and sparked global outrage. The advert shows a black man covered in paint getting thrown into a washing machine by a light-skinned Chinese woman he is flirting with after she pops a detergent tablet into his mouth. After some time, a light-skinned Chinese man emerges from the washing machine and the woman looks pleased.
The company behind the ad, Qiaobi, issued an apology but said the media was blowing the advert out of proportion. The company said in a statement:
“[Due to] the harm that has been caused to members of the ethnic African communities as a result of the advertisement’s circulation and the over-dramatization by the public opinion, we hereby express our apology and sincerely hope that the internet users as well as media will not over-analyze. We strongly oppose and condemn racial discrimination.”
Qiaobi also said the advert has been taken down and they hope that internet users and media will not continue to circulate it.
