Outrage erupts over ‘racist’ Chinese detergent ad

A black man and a young Chinese woman are flirting, as he leans in for a kiss she thrusts a detergent capsule in his mouth and bundles him into a laundry machine.
She sits atop the machine as the man spins and screams inside until, to her apparent delight, out pops a handsome Chinese man dressed in a clean, white t-shirt.
This staggeringly offensive advert is attracting outrage on both the Chinese and wider web, with users blasting it for being racist.

“My god,” wrote one user on Weibo, China’s version of Twitter. “Don’t Chinese marketing people get any education about race?”
“If you don’t understand why it’s racist, congratulations, you’re a racist,” wrote another, after some commenters tried to defend the ad.
