Tesco has been accused of removing a Black couple’s scene from its advert to avoid backlash. This comes after the ad furore. Model and actress Vanessa Vanderpuye took to IG stories to express disappointment about being cut from the production.

Vanessa explains what the significance of featuring in the Tesco advert as part of a dark-skinned Black couple, with her beautiful Afro hair, would've been. ‡️

If there are people who feel uncomfortable about seeing Black people in popular adverts, then good!

All of this really just shows that including us in their adverts is simply down to marketing and PR for these brands. They (the couple) were gorgeous too! Shame on Tesco.
