Naomi Campbell Cries Racism Over Cadbury Chocolate Ad

by at . Comments

Cadbury had some fun at the expense of Naomi Campbell last week, but the super model isn't laughing.

The company ran the following ad in British newspapers last week, hyping its Dairy Milk Bliss Bar as the "new diva in town" and taking a jab at Campbell, whose violent past includes spitting at a cop, attacking a limo driver and assaulting a cameraman.

Sounds rather diva-like to us.

Cadbury Chocolate Ad

But not to Naomi.

"I am shocked," Campbell said. "It's upsetting to be described as chocolate, not just for me, but for all black women and black people as a race. I do not find any humor in this. It's insulting and hurtful."

Do you agree? Is the ad inappropriately targeting black women? Or just this one, scandalous woman who happens to be black? Sound off now: is it racist?

Even black people are ignorant to underhanded racism, sexual objectification, and dehumanization by whites. They actually think it's cool to be constantly compared to foods and animals by white people. It's just another way whites try to dehumanize people of color. We're the only race (women AND men) who are constantly subjected to such treatment based on the color of our skin. Our black men are constantly being inappropriately referred to as candy bars (i.e. Snickers, Mr Good Bars, etc) and other sexual and racist terms by non-black people. This needs to stop and this should not be acceptable to black people. How can we ever be equal if we're always objectified? We're not candy. We're not edible. We're not chocolate. We're not caramel candy. We're not black coffee. We're not mocha. We're not exotic animals. The list goes on and on. White people love comparing us to these things and it must stop!

She was offended? She is just looking for an excuse to make some $$$. There is nothing ofensive or racist about being compared to chocolate, just as a white woman being compared to milk or snow. Nor does she have the exclusive on the name Naomi. Get a life... there´s a HUGE difference between her and chocolate... the latter is sweet and always enjoyable LOL!

Years ago, Naomi Campbell claimed that she did Not get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day. At some point, she is going to have to wake up because the world does Not cater to her dumb a@ss!!

Too bad she doesn't read all of these, she'd go "postal" on all of us, kind of like a lunatic, bipolar snickerdoodle.

They should rename the candy bar "Bitch."

Where in the ad does it say Naomi Campbell? Is she the only Naomi on the planet?

It's a mind over matter thing... Naomi needs to seek psychiatric help, who would think of this as racist except a person who needs help getting over racists issues !!!!

i just find this funny. as a black woman i take no offense to this at all. i think she just doesnt like the idea of being outshined by a chocolate bar which actually proves the ad true lol. they probably should have gotten permission to use her name firs tho.
