Ad Showing Black Boy Being Fed Like Dog Is Pulled

Feed a Child, a public benefit organization in South Africa, has recently apologized for their latest television advertisement that shows a white woman feeding a Black boy as if he was a dog. “We acknowledge the fact that the advert could be seen as insensitive or distasteful and we take heed to the fact that many perceived the advert as racist,” the company wrote in a statement. “This was most certainly not the intention, and again we apologise.”
