Naomi on Cadbury's Apology: "What Took Ya So Long?"
Jun 06, 2011 - by Lester Brathwaite
Cadbury issued an apology to
superbitch supermodel Naomi Campbell after likening her to a bar of chocolate. Naomi, meanwhile, couldn't care less since she probably forgot about the whole incident shortly after she screamed at, humiliated and ultimately fired someone about it, but made a pleasant gesture by releasing an unpleasant statement:
"I'm pleased that Cadbury have made a 'sincere apology' in regards to their Bliss ad campaign. The advertisement was in poor taste on a number of levels, not least in the way they likened me to their chocolate bar. It is also a shame that it took so long for Cadbury to offer this apology."
Note the quotes around sincere apology. That's sarcastic shorthand for you're full of shit.
Nomes went on to say:
"I hope they and other multinationals can learn from this; that offence may not be their intention, but when it is shown that it has caused offence a sincere apology straight away goes a long a way."
Translation: "I will sue a bitch."
And then she brought it on home:
"Better still they should avoid causing offense in the first place which is best achieved by having greater diversity at board and senior management level."
Translation: "My best friend -- NELSON MANDELA, thank you very much -- would want it that way."
