Bad week for:
Dove, whose latest advert was denounced as racist. The commercial for body wash shows a black woman peeling off her T-shirt to reveal a white woman underneath. Dove apologised and withdrew the advert, which it said “missed the mark in representing women of colour thoughtfully” ( see page 49). Dennis the Menace, who has had a makeover. In a new CBBC series – designed to appeal to the international market – the Beano’s most famous miscreant has swapped his catapult for an ipad. His dog Gnasher now has neat white teeth in place of his trademark fangs; and his nemesis Walter is no longer dubbed a “softie”, to avoid accusations of homophobia.
