People Are Upset With Dove Over Ad Twitter Is Calling 'Racist'

By Aimee Lutkin

Make up artist and business woman Naomi Blake posted images from a Dove ad she saw on Facebook on October 6, in which a black woman takes off her shirt only to reveal a white woman underneath. 

Blake was confused and seemingly horrified, and she tried to reach out to Dove with explanations for why the ad was tone deaf. She even offered suggestions for how they could edit the commercial to make it more appropriate. 

“So I’m scrolling through Facebook and this is the #dove ad that comes up … ok so what am I looking at,” she wrote as the caption.
