January 22, 2014 – Black Woman Mannequin Chair Sparks Racism Row: Roman Abramovich‘s Girlfriend Apologizes

Dasha Zhukova, the girlfriend of Chelsea Football club owner, Roman Abramovich has been caught in a viral racism scandal after doing a fashion photo shoot sitting on a black woman mannequin chair.

The popular Romanian model came under fire yesterday after posting the above picture on her instagram page.

It coincided with MLK Martin Luther King Day and the outrage forced her to take it down and crop the picture .

She has removed the photo from her instagram profile and offered a formal apology.

“This photograph, which has been published completely out of context, is of an artwork intended specifically as a commentary on gender and racial politics.

“I utterly abhor racism, and would like to apologise to anyone who has been offended by this image.” – Ms Zhukova said

Racism aside, that chair looks creepy. What do you think?

    I see this as modern slavery
    They may not have the opportunity to hold blacks hostage physically but in their subconscious minds, this is how they view black people
    I can never marry a white woman God forbid bad thing

      @Red, what is the meaning of that comment, if you read very well on this page you see that she apologized because she knows what she did was wrong, why don’t the nice artist as you said make that Status a white woman? If you leave in Abroad like us; you will understand vividly what Racism means.. Black loves the white people with passion, example people respect white-men and women in our country Nigeria and offer them a good job opportunities but is it like that in white-men country? Capital No!!! A black person cannot make a such chair…

    Raymond stop shouting and listen.my grandfather own similar artwork and they are rare and very expensive and beautiful of course.maybe you don’t really know much about artwork.That chair is damn beautiful and unique i don’t care about who sat on it but the work itself.I don’t know what part of abroad you stay because red lives and work in California,LA.I have never,I SAID NEVER EVER RECEIVE ANY SILLY TREATMENT FROM ANYBODY,NO,NOT ONE and I work in a govt hospital.maybe you need to change state.Raymond you can’t make me choke on your theory because i have mine and believe in it.The lady apologize for a chair that’s her business not mine.that chair Raymond is creepy and beautiful in a unique way.

      Red or what do they call you.
      1. Please, if you are from the white race, then Metu Nyetu’s comment is for you; and
      2. If you are from the black race but the slavery salary/pay you are getting from that country has made your thinking “somehow” then Metu Nyetu’s comment multiply by 50 is strictly meant for you. Go and sleep.

    Lake i wonder which part of overseas you live in and of course the type of job or work you do there that makes them regard you the way they do .Red is in los Angeles California and is a Registered Nurse with Harbour UCLA.from your comment lake,it show you just travelled from your village to the nearest town and think you can talk down on people.sorry for your condition.

    Stop degrading Nigerian and her citizens because that’s just stupid.most of “you” that lives abroad according to you Raymond and lake are not better than those in Nigeria.some of the people you referred to those not living in your abroad have houses with complete payment at once while you the so called abroad guy might living in apartment or room to rent and is your credit is up to 720 you pays mortgage on the place you are boosting of even the car you drive so zip it up because they in Nigeria are better than you.some of those people you call myopic visit such country just for their shopping or vacation while you work to pay your phone bills and think you are better than them.Abroad is no longer a big deal because almost every family have a relation there.stop degrading your motherland in trying to table yourselves is really childish.concentrate on the topic at hand because half the visitors here are Africans living in your so called abroad.I have housed more than 3 people in my house without taking rent from them because of one problem or another who still makes call to Nigeria and claim your abroad big catch.

    @Bench, Thanks for drawing my attention to this subject, I never saw this fantastically interesting quarrell page before now but it is highly entertaining reading the comments.
    Being the quiet, peace-loving person I am, I accept the apology simply because there is no point in crying over spilt milk.
