Social Justice Warriors Flip Out Over ‘Racist’ Dove Commercial [VIDEO]

Dove released a commercial that has social justice warriors up in arms and is forcing the soap company to issue an apology. The video features an African-American woman taking off a brown shirt, only to transition into a red-headed white woman wearing a cream-colored shirt. The white woman then takes off her shirt, transitioning into another white woman — this time with black hair — wearing a beige shirt.

However, the commercial in its entirety — though brief — isn’t what’s being shared on social media. Instead, a side-by-side photo of the African-American woman changing into the white woman is what’s making the rounds.

Not unexpectedly, people are upset:

Dove issued an apology:

But as some on social media have pointed out, the side-by-side image isn’t representative of the actual commercial. Taken in context, the ad goes from appearing explicitly racist to looking like a case of unfortunate optics.

What do you think? Did dove do anything wrong with their commercial or are SJW’s up in arms for no reason again?
