DTI fumes over racist ‘Filipinos’ dark chocolate brand

 

A chocolate bar from Spain, named “Filipinos” got the ire of Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez.

GMA reporter Cedric Castillo reported that the snack bars captioned with “chocolate negro” are being sold at a membership shopping club in Manila.

“It is not allowed to use a country or nationality in a brand. It may be allowed in their country or nakalusot, but not allowed here,” Lopez was quoted.

Lopez gave the Spanish producer some leeway, saying that the racist connotation may have been due to loss in translation.
