The famous gallery owner and socialite Daria Zhukova is considered an intelligent and sophisticated lady. But she sometimes has unforeseen scandalous incidents. So, the day before, a photograph of Zhukova appeared on the Web, sitting on an unusual chair. The picture became a sensation, but not at all what Daria would have liked.
In the scandalous photo, the gallery owner is captured on a chair in the form of a naked, tied black woman. The piece of furniture looks quite original, at least, apparently, this is how Zhukova and the founder of the Internet portal Buro 24/7 Miroslava Duma reasoned, on whose website a picture appeared as an illustration for an interview with Daria. However, a few hours after the publication of the photo, angry bloggers attacked Zhukova.
Daria and Miroslava were accused of racism.
And most of all the bloggers were outraged by the fact that the picture was published on January 20 - on the birthday of the famous fighter for the rights of blacks Martin Luther King. “It's just incredible racism,” said the organizing for Women's Liberation. The publisher of the FashionBombDaily.com blog said the photo is very humiliating: "White dominance and superiority, expressed in a humiliating way, although seemingly harmless." Some social media users were so outraged that they opted for harsher language. “I hope that the people from Buro 24/7 and Dasha Zhukova will die a terrible death and burn in hell,” wrote one of the particularly furious readers.
However, Miroslava Duma hastened to rectify the situation. The picture was corrected, and the girl made the appropriate explanations. “Of course, such a reaction could not even have been foreseen by us. We are now going to write comments and official apologies, because no one was going to offend anyone's feelings,”said Duma, adding that the scandalous chair is the work of the famous artist Allen Jones, one of the iconic representatives of pop art.
“This is just one of his most famous works - furniture in the form of female figures. There are both white women and black women. To be honest, we are a little shocked, it is strange for us. But, of course, we apologize to all the people whose feelings we have hurt."
Film academy criticized for harassing blacks
Popular singer Justin Bieber is at the center of yet another scandal. A suspicious powder resembling cocaine was reportedly found at the singer's home in Calabasas, California. Justin himself has not yet been accused of drug possession, but the singer faces a trial in court over a case of hooliganism.
The famous brawler Naomi Campbell once again found herself in a rather difficult situation. Fortunately, she does not face jail time or correctional labor for beating the maids yet. But then the supermodel is accused of causing harm to the environment and the extermination of turtles.
TV presenter Victoria Bonya diligently maintains her reputation as a stylish girl. Since last week, the Russian woman has been parading along the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, showing off glamorous outfits. Alas, but not without incident.
And again there was information about the star family "Jolie - Pitt and Children". This time, these are not messages about charity events, but a scandalous showdown. The fact is that the photo of the baby Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt is not clear how it turned out to be posted on several Internet blogs.
