Today’s Lady News: Summer’s Eve Pulls Their Racist Douche Ads Offline

  • Summer’s Eve pulled two of their racist douche commercials offline after an outpouring of complaints over their depictions of black and Latina women. Summer’s Eve’s PR defended their ads — like the sassy black vagina spoke with an “urban” accent and talked about how much money she spends on her hair — as “empowering” women and even said they had “in-house multi-cultural experts” who OKed the commercials.
