Pigeon confronted warm for a body-wash promotion demonstrating a grouping of a dark lady removing her darker shirt to uncover a white lady, with numerous web-based social networking clients calling the GIF cut supremacist.

Bird has expelled the post from its Facebook page and posted remarks via web-based networking media Saturday, saying it "came up short in speaking to ladies of shading astutely."

"As a major aspect of a battle for Dove body wash, a 3-second video cut was presented on our US Facebook page. It highlighted three ladies of various ethnicities, each expelling a shirt in coordinating skin tones to uncover the following lady. The visual was proposed to pass on that Dove body wash is for each lady and be a festival of decent variety, yet we missed the point and accordingly irritated many individuals," an agent for Dove said in a messaged proclamation to "We are profoundly sad. We have evacuated the post and have not distributed any related substance. We don't excuse any movement or symbolism that affront any crowd. We are re-assessing our inside procedures for making and checking on content.

While that post has been brought down, screenshots from the promotion are circling extensively on the web. One is a gathering of four pictures demonstrating the dark lady transforming into the white lady.
