As insenitive as it may be, Naomi Watts and chocolate have a lot in common.
1. Color, obviously
2. Using it will give you a quick burst of energy, but leave you needing a nap soon after.
3. I would like to taste them both.
4. Both have no real talent, unless you count being desireable as a talent, in which case, both have.
5. I would like to put my penis into both of them.
6. I would like to share both with a chesty blonde.
7. White women will buy anything with either of them in it.
8. Inability to make reasonable decisions about lawsuits.
9. Heres why cadbury is dumb. Neither are singers, and so, neither are divas.

maybe she is complaining because they didnot pay her for using her name and was thinking like either one way or the other, I should get some money out of this.

@Trojan no there are plenty of things to complain about. The problem is, most of those things are stupid, simple, and petty. Sadly most people who complain about these things are exactly that as well.

What I wonder is, what if it was a white chocolate?

That sounds about right.

Everyone loves chocolate. Why would the association be hurtful? She`s ashamed to be black? er... brown?

She is crazy and wants money. And what easier way than to play the race card. The next PC term for black people is going to be "the pigment enhanced."

I hope no one takes this serious. She`s just mad because Cadbury called her out on her bitchyness. I`m a black woman and I like being called chocolate. There are plenty of other "brotha`s and sista`s" who will agree with me.

Im gald to see that in general (and on the original site) people have seen thorugh this for what it is, an egotistical persons` personal `issue` and not a racistthing in any way form or fashion. Anyways, who dont like being called a chocolate, its a cute term of endearment.

It`s saying she`s a diva, not a bar of chocolate ffs. I hate it when people try and pluck racism out of thin air.
Literally any diva could have been picked for this advert regardless of race, she should feel pleased that she is famous enough to have been picked as the diva they wanted in their advert.

I think being called one of the best treats in the world would be a compliment, but no... It`s a slur and an insult to black people everywhere *rolls eyes*
You know what Caucasians get? Vanilla. That lame-ass, plain as clouds, herb.
No epic candy, an herb that is used to describe the plain or boring things in life.
Lol, not complaining, just pointing out that it`s an honorific, not an insult.

hahahah silly girl. If you`re skin is brown there are worse things to be compared with. Like a Hershey bar for example...

I prefer the creamy milk chocolate bar to the bitter chocolate that`s suing. Best and worst of Britain, respectively.

Dunno about you, but I`m enjoying my morning coffee Berry infusion right now. Then I`m off to the corner store to buy a case of Cadburys.

Cadbury: "Naomi Campbell? Who`s that? We`re referring to Naomi {Watts/Scott/take your pick}."

Yeah, pretty sure there`s more than one Naomi in the world - or even in Britain, as the case may be.

this beotch is dumb and should be treated as a dumb beotch accordingly. she has no REAL justification, only a vague reference to a color and no negative connotations against her. seems to be the verdict is: racist black woman is racist and suspects racism from others and wants to make money off it.

Nice to see an American corporation finally sticking to their guns.

"It`s particularly galling because we`ve just had a week that saw the establishment fall over themselves to be close to the Obamas and yet black people are being derided in such an insulting and negative way," he said..

Hmm.. maybe that`s because it`s ALL IN YOUR HEAD?

Let`s circumvent her free publicity next time and just stick with a white celebrity. Except "Lindsay."

Meh, Cadbury obviously knew they were dealing with a diva here, they should`ve expected a diva response.

Side note, seriously, even if they DID call her chocolate (which they didn`t), is that really racism?

Racism –noun
1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one`s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

Let`s see...comparison to chocolate....nope. Totally clean.

[quote]his woman is being a pissy bitch, sure, but she also has the right to control how her image, including her name, are used.[/quote]

If that`s what she was talking about, I`d say that she had a point.

But she isn`t talking about that at all. She`s just judging everything on colour and using racism as a political and legal tool to give her more power and more money.

There`s nobody better suited for a "diva" ad campaign in the UK, so they used her for it.

If she was complaining because it makes her look bad, I`d say she had a point there too. But she isn`t.

Maybe she`s just so racist herself that she assumes everyone else thinks the same way, so she assumes that Cadburys is as obsessed with "race" as she is.

Maybe she`s rational and calculating and knows that playing the race card is far more likely to get her more media coverage, money and power than suing Cadburys for using her in adverts without paying he

F*ck, this ARTICLE is racist, not the ad. The ad was saying that the chocolate is pampered like a diva. Not that the Naomi = chocolate.

The article, however, chose to mention...
""It`s particularly galling because we`ve just had a week that saw the establishment fall over themselves to be close to the Obamas and yet black people are being derided in such an insulting and negative way," he said.."

Translated to - The UK was nice to the Obamas, therefore we should be nice to all black people. As if black people are one single entity, rather than individuals.

"Simon Woolley of the group Operation Black Vote told the Independent that he has written to Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson in the U.S."

...as if Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are the kings of black people and speak for all of them.

Calm the hell down Campbell. You`re not being described as chocolate, you`re being described as a diva.

Maybe you just haven`t been in the public eye often enough recently to pay the bills and you want people to start saying your name more, even if it`s in reference to a preposterous non-news story.

Or Ebony this, and "its a black thing" that...

I think the N word should no longer be considered racist. i think it should be redefined as some jerkoff piece of shyt that calls everything RACIST. How long before the WHITE of a clean piece of toilet paper is racist?

@ Blacks -You want to know where Racism truely resides in this day and age? Look in a goddamn mirror. America has done its part for full integration and yet you all prefer to stay separate. God forbid somebody do something white like...oh I dont know....Doing good in school, or, hell I dont know, say ASK as its spelled? Not AXE just because you are black. Then calling racist when someone corrects you.

GOD THE OVERFLOWING RAGE!!!!!

As others have already said - this isn`t really a race thing at all (I think the whole hallmark hoops and yoyo "Black [holes/whores]" bumsuckery had more credence and it was a complete a$$hat circus)

If Kraft saw this coming, and did it anyway - then they did it because of the attention it would grab, because they knew that it would be absolutely stupefyingly absurd if some imbecilic judge ruled against them.

When someone is truly oppressed in a racial sense, I do feel for them. I really do - being prejudiced against someone because of their race is pathetic. Stupid. Their skin is a different color. Who the frack cares, get over it, bigots.

However, when someone turns something like this into a "race" issue it makes me ridiculously mad that people can possibly still behave like this - we`re not animals in a jungle, let`s behave like intelligent humans.

Gah. And i`m keeping this message "civil".

Boycott the brand because Naomi Campbell thinks it`s calling her a chocolate bar? No!

And it`s not even calling her chocolate, it`s saying that this new bar is the new Diva, so the other Diva should move over, it`s not saying the old Diva was a chocolate bar ffs.

Here`s the thing: the definition of "racist" means to view one race superior or inferior to others. Saying a black woman is like chocolate is not racist because everyone loves chocolate. It`s really no different than saying she has lovely brown skin. That`s not racist in any way.
