Burt’s Bees is apologizing for an ad that showcased multiple families. Critics say the ad was offensive because it included a photograph of a Black family that included a mother and her children without their father, thus perpetuating the stereotype of the missing Black dad.
The company took to social media to offer an apology of sorts.
The image was taken down by the company but not before Baller Alert captured the image and posted it on its Instagram account.
