Racist Chocolate?
Cadbury finally says, 'our bad bad Naomi!'

For chocolate lovers, Cadbury is indisputably deeeeeeeeelish but could we ever imagine that this delectable treat was politically incorrect and racist?

Cadbury's regrettable advertisement caused controversy with camera-magnet and supermodel, Naomi Campbell.

After seeing the advertisement, she said, "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 humor in this. It is insulting and hurtful."

Activists like Reverend Al Sharpton and Reverend Jesse Jackson were infuriated and even went far enough to threaten to boycott the entire company.

Did Cadbury really think they would get away with racially insulting an international supermodel...?

Anyhow, it apparently took them "too long" (Naomi Campbell) to apologize but they did and she "accepted" their apology, which can be seen on their website.

Way to go, Cadbury...you scrumptious yet racist piece of chocolate.
