Singapore ad showing 'brownface' faces flak online

Jul 29, 2019 21:07 IST

An advertisment in Singapore that shows a Chinese actor with his skin darkened to portray people of different ethnicities is garnering a lot of flak online. A government ad for cashless transaction shows actor Dennis Chew in brownface - a practice to darken the skin colour of actors. Singapore, which is a melting pot of different cultures saw people questioning why different actors from each ethnicity weren't picked for the ad.
