Dove, a beauty brand manufacture has pulled down its latest advert which has been alleged to depict and promote racism between the white and the blacks.
Dove’s advert features a black woman who after using their product is quickly transformed into a white woman.
Many have thought that this advert is demeaning the black skin and glorifies having a white skin. Which the soap tries to show that If you use the dove brand, your skin would be better just like the white skin.
However, they have apologized on twitter.

Eminem is a real nigga.
He’s just a black man that was unfortunate to use Dove skin care and got lighter. He’s one of us.
