Clicks has suspended two of its employees following the controversy that sparked on Friday a few hair advert that portrayed black women’s hair as ‘Frizzy and Dull’ & ‘Dry and Damaged,’ while white women’s hair portrayed as ‘Normal and Fine.’
Vikesh Ramsunder, Clicks Group CEO said the incident that happened looks so disappointing which might cause transformation for the organisation.
“I am deeply disappointed. I couldn’t believe this happened within our organisation because until Thursday i assumed we were within the right direction around transformation we’ve done enormous work.”
“More than 80-percent of our employees are black but what I even have come to understand is that I even have tons more work to try to to within the organisation.”
“I can always pass the bark to Unilever which i’m not doing, I can do what i’m doing in my organisation to form sure that this doesn’t repeat itself.”
Meanwhile, Floyd Shivambu – EFF Deputy President said the Economic Freedom Fighters will keep to their protest against racism and no writ from Clicks will hinder them.
On Monday morning, Clicks’ lawyers wrote a letter to the party with instructions to avoid any sort of violence as operations will continue as was common in the least its stores.
