Microsoft Poland Or The Biggest Racist Photoshop Disaster Ever

Posted by : admin
Filed under : General

This is probably the most racist event lately, and it’s sad that one of the biggest companies in the world is involved. Two pictures of a Microsoft ad campaign in two difference countries were leaked on the Internet. The picture for the US was showcasing an Asian man, a black man, and a white woman at a conference, and there is nothing wrong with that.

However, at the Microsoft Poland website the same picture was present, but there was a big difference. The head of the black man had been replaced with a head of a white man. Why would Microsoft do that? Who knows, but they should definitely investigate and take some actions. In the Microsoft Poland picture you can see how the hand of the white man is still black.

The Photoshop disaster doesn’t end here. Neither does the racism. Microsoft apologized for the picture, and somewhat said that it’s an ethnicity thing as there aren’t too many black people in Poland, but the problem is that there aren’t too many Asians in Poland. So if this wasn’t a racist issue then the company should have removed the Asian man too.

There are too many things wrong with this picture. Racism is the biggest problem, and there are other Photoshop disasters like where is the cable of the monitor, and why is there a MacBook in a Microsoft ad?

Microsoft will try to solve their troubles, but I know that the Internets will never forgive them. And why should they?
