Dailymail – The girlfriend of Russian tycoon Roman Abramovich has dramatically apologised after being accused of racism by posing in a chair that resembled a bound and semi-naked black woman.
Art expert and fashion guru Dasha Zhukova, 32, said: ‘I utterly abhor racism, and would like to apologise to anyone who has been offended by this image.’
The photograph showing her sitting in the shocking chair was published ‘completely out of context’, she said.
Maybe not that chair? I mean, I’d argue that chair could cause some controversy 365 days a year but I know you’ll catch some heat for sitting on a semi-naked, bound, black woman on a day reserved for remembering the most famous black civil rights leader of all time.
Then again this woman is Russian. So she may be able to plead ignorance on this whole thing. That and her BF is a bajillionaire Russian tycoon who’s boys with Putin so we should probably be worried more about her owning actual slaves as opposed to possibly-offensive furniture. I think all nationalities, races, religions and creeds can agree though, there’s zero chance that’s a comfortable chair and I’d never purchase such a thing.
