Naomi Campbell Upset Over Cadbury Ad
Cadbury recently released advertisements for their Bliss chocolate bars, a “dreamy chocolate truffle.” On one of the ads, the British confectionary company included the tagline ‘Move over Naomi, there’s a new diva in town.” Upon seeing this, Naomi Campbell, 41 year old supermodel, was not pleased. The way Campbell sees it, Cadbury is placing her in the same league as chocolate. In a statement sent to CNN, Campbell complains that the ad is “insulting and hurtful."
This kind of reaction isn’t surprising, as Campbell is known for her, well, diva-like antics. She’s been accused several times for violence and abuse against employees, most of them involving her throwing phones at people. The accusation against Cadbury only seems to be her latest venture in stirring up some drama to add to her rap sheet.
Although it’s quite obvious that Cadbury was playing at the diva front rather than at the blatantly racist ‘chocolate’ indication, Campbell is still pretty upset, and threats of suing the company are in the air. Cadbury has pulled the ad and states “we would never produce any marketing activity we felt might cause offense to any section of society.”
If anything, Campbell’s attitude seems to only reinforce what Cadbury was saying in the first place.
