While Dr Mumbo welcomes any brand that makes an effort to diversify away from a relentless sea of white faces on their advertising, Dr Mumbo is a little surprised to see the cover of the new Best & Less catalogue currently being distributed across Australia.
Given the stereotype around black people and watermelons, is this cover shot really ideal?
As Dr Mumbo’s informant puts it to him: “Arguably the most insensitive imagery on a retail catalogue possible, and B&L has an American CEO. What were they thinking??”
