Naomi Campbell Receives Apology From Cadbury

​ ​ ​ ​

Cadbury, the chocolate maker, has issued an official apology to Naomi Campbell after an embarrassing ad compared the model to chocolate. Deets inside....

Attempting to avoid a lawsuit, chocolate maker Cadbury posted an official apology to Naomi Campbell on their website saying,

"Cadbury understands that our latest advertising campaign for 'Cadbury Dairy Milk Bliss' caused upset to Naomi Campbell and her family. Cadbury takes its responsibility to consumers very seriously indeed and we would never deliberately produce any marketing material we felt might cause offence to any section of society.

"It was not our intention that this campaign should offend Naomi, her family or anybody else and we are sincerely sorry that it has done so.

"We can confirm that the advertisement is no longer in circulation and we will not be using it in future marketing....We have been in discussions with Naomi's solicitors and can confirm that they have accepted our apology on her behalf as a conclusion to this issue."

 

No word yet on whether Naomi will accept the apology or if she will still pursue legal action.  And by legal action we mean handling the situation with her blackberry throwing arm....

Naomi is from the UK

Naomi is from the UK (England Naomi is from the UK (England to be exact) and they have a racial slur called "chocolate" or "chocolate face". It's meant to be insulting - like saying ni**er here. It's not offensive in the US - but that's not the case all over. She was right to put them in their place.

Yeeeeaaaah, I just googled that stuff you made up about chocolate being derogatory in England and couldn't find anything. . . It's amazing how people parents raised them to believe that saying something makes it so. SMH YOU"RE COMMON.

Since when did chocolate

Since when did chocolate become a negative thing?! Most of you all just don't won't to be reminded that you're whatever shade you are. Now if it were a Swiffer commercial with the mud and dirt - ok houston we have a problem. But this is some unnecessary race card pulling. The reference that her skin is comparable to sweet, rich chocolate is a gotdamn compliment. And white people's skin is also compared to things -- snow, milk, cream, porcelain. Get over it. I'm sure her biggest issue was with the "Move over Naomi there is a new chocolate in town" because it does imply her lack of relevance instead of complimenting her skin, and if they didn't get permission to use her name - that's another issue. But chocolate, toffee, caramel, vanilla, cream, all delicious and all beautiful. Now I think I'll grab a Heath Bar

is she really serious?? I

is she really serious?? I mean first of all it wasn't like she was compared to shit? Its chocolate? Its reflecting how rich smooth, and sweet her skin is. I dont see why canbury had to appologizes. She knew what she was up for. She just messing up her rep, i mean who would want to endorse someone thats a total diva. idk if just trying to make a few $ or what but shes really stupid and quite frankly very spoiled. and she dating a men that still married to women. like really? you need to apologize! sit down somewhere please and go through a brush at a tree. I'm tired of this girl for real!

Anonymous's picture

the obviously weren't

the obviously weren't comparing her sweetness to that of the chocolate's. it was about her complexion and trying to give chocolate a personality a better or worse than hers. it's not okay to compare brown people to anything that is brown, DooDoo. you don't see them using the color of white people to advertise white things.

Im dark skinned and don't

Im dark skinned and don't appreciate being called chocolate. I'd rather be referred IF ANYTHING that Im dark skinned cuz it is what it is. Now, if a guy referred to a group of dark skinned girls, even if I was included I wouldnt mind so much but to point someone out and call them chocolate is rude

For anyone who has a problem

For anyone who has a problem with Naomi's issue with Cadbury, it's not about YOU. It's about her and how she felt about it, so get over it. Who are you or anyone else to tell her she shouldn't be offended just because YOU don't see the offense.

I must say that I have to

I must say that I have to agree with Naomi here. Cadbury was out of line. The reason I say that is this. One time an asian told me "nigger go back to your CHOCOLATE wrapper." Needless to say I whipped his azz but it was very offensive. And comparing her to chocolate has all kind of underlying racial inferences and gives ignorant people such as the asian dude who said that to me more inappropriate ways of categorizing african americans.

just to co-sign ASIAN men are

just to co-sign ASIAN men are the most racist mutherfukkers in the world. they HATE black women. there are so many stereotypical skits and other shit that they do making fun of black women its not even funny. i find it hilarious that these cat, roach eating coochie eyed mofos have the nerve to hate on anyone. but then again, if all your women were shaped like 10 year boys i guess i'd be mad too....lol

The last time I checked, chocolate wasn't human. It's something you eat, so, NO, she isn't chocolate. When someone calls you that, then you thank them for the compliment.

Seriously people, no one

Seriously people, no one compared Naomi to a chocolate bar! Cadbury's referred to her well documented and deserved reputation as a Diva, used her name and pictured a bar of chocolate in a bowl of diamonds. Nothing about race or ethnicity is inferred here. Get over yourselves and stop being manipulated in an argument which is more about Naomi not getting paid than it is about racism!
Bubble's picture

I don't like Naomi Campbell

I don't like Naomi Campbell because of the way she treats people; but in this instance she was 100% right...and Cadbury knows it or else they wouldn't have apologized. If she were any other (white) model, they would have paid a hefty $um just to be able to mention their name. So for them to use her name--and compare her to chocolate was WRONG. Noone ever compares the white models to anything. Her personal life aside, business is business and Cadbury eff'd up.

Naomi is looking for more

Naomi is looking for more attention. She is so full of shit. This is all about her pSycho ass being compared to chocolate??? Since when is that a diss? They should have compared her ass to the NUTs inside the bars. She is super crazy, emotional, and got a married boyfriend. What a spastic crazy bitch?!! I'm so not a fan, I totally hate her and all that she stands for which is clearly nothing. Sit down with your crazy, bat shit, nutty self.
