Naomi Campbell Thinks This Ad Is Racist, Thankyouverymuch

May 31, 2011 / Posted by:

Naomi Campbell is threatening to throw a lawsuit right at the faces of Cadbury for using her name and comparing her to a chocolate bar in one of their new ads. The “diva” Cadbury is referring to could be their bitchy office manager Naomi Lewis, but Naomi Campbell thinks this is about Naomi Campbell. Which it totally is. The diamonds give it away. Cadbury should’ve thrown in a blood-soaked maid’s uniform and a broken BlackBerry too.

Naomi released this short statement to The Independent. A statement that will make every executive at Cadbury trade in their BlackBerry for an iPhone, because don’t think that Naomi can’t control any BlackBerry WITH HER MIND!

“I am shocked. It’s upsetting to be described as chocolate, not just for me, but for all black women and black people. I do not find any humour in this. It is insulting and hurtful.”

Cadbury has since apologized, saying they didn’t mean to offend anybody. They have also pulled the ad and will not run it again. Instead, they are retooling the ad for their new Bliss white chocolate and nuts bar and plan to use the tagline: “Move over Karl, there’s a new kunt in town!
