Bad Taste Alert: Russian Socialite Dasha Zhukova Sitting On Black Woman-Like Chair

Shouldn't this woman know better? Russian socialite Dasha Zhukova is facing criticism for an image that appeared in her interview with website,, showing her sitting on a Black woman-like chair. (the image has now been cropped to remove the part of the chair that looks like a Black woman, but you can see the original image below).
What gives? Also known as: WTF?

Yet another example of self-loathing...

Jennifer: it does look kinda' sexy.... Litha: thanx for clarifying that....

by the way the chair also comes in "white woman" and it's one of a series that reinterprets art historical works from artist Allen Jones as a commentary on gender and racial politics.

I'm sorry, but that chair is terribly sexy. And it's not an actual woman, for those that didn't notice. Also, did she explain what this was all about?

I actually think it's artistic. I’m guessing it’s a test of how far we have come as the world. Do we still look at people differently based on the colour of their skin, or are we able to see past that and just see people as people?

When I see this photo the lesbian in me screams "Wahhoo, ride'em cowgrl!" This is sexy, what are people talking about? Then I take a closer look and notice that it isn't a person but a mannequin under the cushion, I have to ask, " what is offensive again?" The original exhibit, from 1979, featured white mannequins as the chair, table legs, and floor lamp. Dasha's perspective wasn't even asked bc people bugged out so quickly. I wanted to know what her point was.

WTF smh...Well this just adds more to the white man's secret obsession of the Black women just being a sexual slave.

Why would a young sister, let alone ANYBODY position themselves as a chair and let someone sit on them. FliPPin' STEWPID!

This seems sexual to me. The model is wearing black sleeves and wearing very little clothing like a dominatrix.  Maybe the socilaite wants to squash black women sexually like she's more sexually powerful than black woman.  It's odd and weird. I hope the model's boobies was okay.LOL.  That position looks uncomfortable and painful. Yikes! But there is a message and it's not a good one.
