Charcoal face masks are being targeted as blackface

Charcoal facial products have been very popular in the last couple years – supposedly the charcoal will draw out bacteria, toxins, dirt and oil, so beauty companies have been marketing lots of products containing charcoal to consumers.

However, people are now saying the ads promoting the product are racist.

Sigh.

Does that mean when I use a blue or green face mask that I’m culturally appropriating Smurfs or the Hulk?

This stuff has gotten so ridiculous.
