No less legendary and controversial actor johnny Depp became the center of another trouble. Due to filming in advertising perfume from the fashion house “Dior” actor accused of racism.
Johnny Depp is not the first time advertising spirits, type celebrity favors to elegant angles and shots filled with the luxury and fragrance of expensive perfumes. Recently, Depp has become the face of the advertising roller of the new perfume “Sauvage” by Dior fashion house.
Unfortunately, the world did not appreciate not only the efforts of the actor, but the creators of the video. The creators and Depp has rolled a wave of criticism. And all this just after the release of a short teaser! Dior decided not to publish the full version of the promotional video after the mass of accusations against him.
After seeing the teaser, people began to accuse Dior racism and exploitation of native American culture.
In the video johnny played guitar in the desert, while his co — actor from the Sioux tribe that lives on a reservation “Rosebud”, performed a dance in traditional Indian headdress and outfit.
Interestingly, the name of the fragrance “Sauvage” can be translated as “savage.” This caused dissatisfaction among the public — people think that over the indigenous peoples of North America just laughed, imagining their life as it was many decades ago, seeing in them the development and adoption of the benefits of the modern world.
Johnny Depp, who strongly disagree with such an estimation of spectators, became the protector of the brand.
“The film was made with great respect not only to the indigenous peoples of America, but around the world. It is unfortunate that the people hastened to criticize it. But it is their legitimate right. I can assure that nobody used. The film was made with lots of love to the Indians in order to shed light on their lives. We will come to an agreement that everyone was happy, ” said Depp.
In addition, one of the complaints to the advertising campaign was the fact that Depp was in it as Indian, even though he is not.
