World Cup: What happened to the Black Dutch “beer babe”?
Photo: Cheering Black girl on the right
Dozens of Dutch female football fans in Bavaria "Dutchdress" were in the international spotlight after they were arrested at the World Cup stadium because they violated FIFA sponsorship rules.
But where was the cheering black girl in the Bavaria commercial which is aired in the Netherlands? See video commercial here.
The scene in South Africa at the World Cup.
It reminds of the international poster of the film Couples Retreat, where the black actors got deleted from the poster to "simplify" it for a European audience.
Maybe sponsor Bavaria was simplifying “Holland” for the world.
