Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are being dragged for their partnership with a company selling skin-whitening creams. Many are questioning how this squares with their anti-racism activism.
Last week, the pair announced a partnership with Procter & Gamble, which sells the controversial Olay cream in India, Malaysia and Singapore.
“Meghan has talked a lot about the issue of race and racism, so this does stick out like a sore thumb,” Alex Malouf, a former Procter & Gamble executive, told The Mirror.
Joanne Rondilla, a professor at San Jose State University, added that the Sussexes had a “responsibility” to address the concerns about the product with the company.
“Like everyone else around the world, I saw that interview with Oprah that Meghan did,” she told the outlet.
