FHM: Retracted Racist Cover

FHM were recently accused of racism, after they posted a sneak peek of their upcoming cover on Facebook.

The March edition of the Philippines FHM had featured white actress Bela Padilla posing in a pink swimsuit surrounded by dark-skinned models, accompanied by the caption ‘stepping out of the shadows’.

FHM were inundated with comments accusing them of racism. They have since changed the cover to the image below…
It’s so nice to see a brand use social media to listen to their customers, and react in an appropriate way.
