    I'm not quite sure that I understand this one:

    A Chinese fashion photographer has apologised for her "ignorance" after a picture she shot for French luxury brand Dior sparked outrage.

    Chen Man's photo showed a woman who some Chinese netizens said perpetuated Western stereotypes of Asian faces.

    "I blame myself for my immaturity and ignorance [in my past works]," Ms Chen, 41, wrote on social platform Weibo.

    Advertisements draw flak in China over Asian stereotypes

    BEIJING (AP) — Advertisements featuring some Chinese models have sparked feuding in China over whether their appearance and makeup are perpetuating harmful stereotypes of Asians.


    German automaker Mercedes-Benz and a Chinese food company are the latest to get caught up in the fray.


    Some Chinese consumers complained after the local snack brand Three Squirrels featured advertisements for noodle products on its Weibo microblogging account showing a Chinese model with eyes they said looked slanted. Critics accused the company of spreading Western stereotypes.

    Mercedes Benz also was attacked by some Chinese online who accused it of using a model with “slanted eyes” in its advertisements on Weibo. The company did not immediately respond to requests for comment.


    The “slanted eyes” stereotype emerged in the West in the 19th century and is considered offensive and derogatory to Asians.


    The latest backlash over advertisements followed one over luxury brand Dior, which apologized and withdrew a photo at an art exhibition showing an Asian model with freckles and very dark makeup clutching a Dior handbag. In response to criticism in China, the company said that it “respects the feelings of the Chinese people.”


    Three Squirrels said in a post Saturday on its official Weibo account that it did not intend to portray a Chinese person in a bad light. The advertisement was shot in 2019, the company said in a statement. The model is Chinese and the makeup style was designed to suit her natural features, it said.


    “In response to the feedback from netizens that the model’s makeup does not conform to publicly-accepted aesthetics standards and caused discomfort, our company apologizes,” the statement read.


    “The page has been replaced and arrangements have been made to check other company pages to ensure that this situation will not happen again.”


    Online, Chinese internet users have criticized the selection of models and makeup styles to deliberately portray the “slanted eyes” image.


    One user with the handle MaoBuErXiong said that such slanted eyes imagery is derogatory and is deeply embedded in the fashion industry, with Asian models and their makeup styles often selected to fit a stereotype.


    The model featured in the Three Squirrels advertisements has spoken out against the criticism.


    “Just because my eyes are small, I’m not good enough to be a Chinese person? I don’t know what to say to these comments … I’m really helpless,” the model said in a Weibo post under the handle Cai Niangniang.


    “As a professional model, what I need to do is be photographed accordingly to what the client wants, I don’t know how this became about me humiliating the Chinese people,” she said.


    The communist party newspaper Global Times said Cai's response drew more than 330 million views.


    “I hope people online would stop messaging me with personal attacks. I’m not a supermodel nor am I a public figure, I’m just someone who loves my motherland and a law-abiding citizen.”

    but asians do have slanted eyes, just as blacks have thick lips, caucasians have big noses, indians talk with bobbing heads and the french have garlic breath.

    i think the chinese annoyance is due to the fact that a woman of obviously chinese origin is posing with a sultry look on her face and her legs splayed wide open looking to all the world like she wants to have sex (after she has finished her squirrel noodles of course) and that is disrespectful to chinese womanhood.

    obviously if it were a caucasian woman posing like that it would be fine with the chinese, because the chinese think that caucasian woman are thoroughly immoral and always want to get laid.

    I just love the way the CCP keep on saying shit like, 'You shall pay for your dishonour' or 'You will pay with a thousand cuts for your deceitful actions' etc etc bla bla bla 1. We never seem to pay and 2. FFS whoever is in charge of propaganda at the CCP, stop watching so many of those period fantasy TV movies when China apparently ruled the world and didn't have to pee or poo.

    Their hyperbole and girly dramatic threats are a tad humorous.
