News: Clicks in hot water over racially insensitive images

Clicks is in hot water over posting racially insensitive images on their website of different hair types, labelling black people’s hair as “dry, damaged, frizzy and dull” and white people’s hair as “normal”.

Many South Africans believe the images show prejudice against natural black hair.

The images on their website sparked outrage on twitter.

“We are the black majority & should NEVER, EVER accept racism in any form. Our hair, our skin & our bodies, in our country & the world, MUST be respected, BY ANY REVOLUTIONARY MEANS NECESSARY! Blacks should go to Clicks & get their Justice, to hell with Reconciliation & Apologies!”

 

Clicks have since removed the images and issued an apology today saying it’s a strong advocate for natural hair.

“We have removed the images which go against everything we believe in. We do not condone racism and we are strong advocates of natural hair. We are deeply sorry and will put in place stricter measures on our website.”
