Features Meghan Markle as a chocolate-covered marshmallow in dress
A German chocolate company is being accused of racism after releasing a royal wedding-themed ad showing a chocolate-covered marshmallow wearing a wedding dress.
The ad for Super Dickmann’s reads, “What are you looking at? Wouldn’t you also want to be Meghan today?” the BBC reported.
Some have called the now-deleted post “racist.”
A spokesman for the company called the ad “stupid and embarrassing.”
Super Dickmann’s even apologized on social media, saying “A big pardon! The world of Super Dickmann’s is colourful and diverse and far from racist thoughts.”
Meghan Markle, a biracial American actress, became the Duchess of Sussex after marrying Prince Harry at Windsor Castle last weekend.
