The tag line for Dairy Milk Bliss bar read "Move over, Naomi, there's a new diva in town. I'm the world's most pampered bar," reported the Independent.
Obviously, Campbell is not happy and said, "I am shocked. It's upsetting to be described as chocolate, not just for me, but for all black women and black people."
Even Campbell's mom has termed the ad racist.
A British organisation which calls it self Operation Back Vote has apealed to the company to issue an apology. The spokesperson threatened, "The only recourse black people have is not to buy its chocolate."
A spokesperson from Cadbury insisted that the campaign is "light hearted". They will withdraw the ad.
