Hello, Monday! Start the working week on a good note with these intriguing headlines that are sure to fire up conversations at the office pantry. From the first-ever bridal collection of a prestige lingerie brand to the reboot of a classic movie, here are the latest news that you need to know.
Filipino beauty brand GlutaMAX finally issued a formal apology amidst all the criticisms surrounding their latest ad which discriminated against people whose skin colour are in the deeper spectrum. In a now-deleted Facebook post, the brand posted a series of photographs encouraging morenas (Filipinas with dark skin) to lighten their complexion so that they can also enjoy the same privileges that people with fairer skin receive. The advertisement even had a cheeky tagline of "Your Fair Advantage" which seems to empower but is just actually appealing to insecurities. What's your take?
