Perfume brand says cutting Black actor from ad was misstep

NEW YORK — British cologne manufacturer Jo Malone has appeared to Dark celebrity John Boyega of all”Star Wars” fame following clipping him from the Chinese variant of a perfume commercial he helped produce.

Jo Malone London explained in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter the advertisement created for Chinese viewers proved to be a misstep and was eliminated. The recreated advertisement replaced Boyega using Chinese celebrity Liu Haoran.

“The idea for the movie was based on John’s own experiences and shouldn’t have been reproduced,” it stated.

Jo Malone along with its parent firm, Estee Lauder, did not respond to emailed requests for comment Sunday. Boyega and his agents also could not be contacted for comment.

The first advertising starring Boyega aired this past season and has been known as”The London Gent.” It includes the London-born celebrity walking around the area where he grew up along with riding a horse at a playground, and it’s reference to his fellow legacy in a spectacle featuring West African dress.

It is not initially Boyega was deleted by a China-based advertisement. He played a major role as Finn at 2015’s”Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” but he and other nonwhite characters had been eliminated or diminished by a Chinese poster to the film.

Boyega has talked of Hollywood racism, lately informing GQ which Black characters happen to be”pushed into the side” at Disney’s”Star Wars” franchise.
