Fallout continues after Italian fashion house ad featured a Chinese woman trying to eat spaghetti with chopsticks
Chinese e-commerce sites have removed Dolce & Gabbana products amid a growing backlash against an advertising campaign that was decried as racist by celebrities and on social media.
The ads featured a Chinese woman struggling to eat spaghetti and pizza with chopsticks, sparking criticism from consumers and forcing the Italian brand to cancel its Shanghai fashion show.
The founder of @dolcegabbana said sorry in Chinese to all Chinese people around the world, saying that they will respect Chinese culture more. The apology video was posted on its official Weibo account in China. pic.twitter.com/ADflYhMIhC
