There is a lot anger social media because of an advertisement a Chinese laundry detergent. Some newspapers are saying it could be the most racist advert ever made. The commercial was created the washing detergent company Qiaobi. In the ad, a young Chinese woman puts a detergent tablet the mouth a black man. She pushes him a washing machine, closes the lid and then turns it . The next scene shows the result of the wash – the black man has turned a white Chinese man. The woman looks happy when she sees the fairer-skinned man. The ad is a month old but went viral 24 hours ago, after it was shared social media.

Many news agencies are attacking the ad because its racist content. The website Buzzfeed called it, the "most racist ad 2016". It said the ad would make you feel dirty. It wrote: "The commercial will likely leave you feeling like you need a shower." One blogger complained that: "Chinese companies fail to understand the sensitivity racism, which is a shame, but common China." Another blogger asked: "How can these marketing people have no knowledge racism?" The owner Qiaobi told the BBC that he didn't realise the ad was racist someone pointed it . He said: "To be honest, I didn't really pay that much attention the advertisement."
