Abramovich’s partner sparks outrage with ‘incredibly racist’ picture



A picture of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich's partner Dasha Zhukova has caused outrage after she was photographed sitting on a life-like mannequin of a half-naked black woman.
The picture was published on a Russian fashion blog called Buro 24/7 to accompany an interview with Zhukova about her new magazine fashion Garage.
Buro 24/7 published the photograph on their website and Instagram page but quickly removed it after it was roundly attacked on the internet.
Some people found the picture particularly insensitive as it was published on Martin Luther King Day.
A group called 'Organizing for Women's Liberation' were amongst those who complained about Buro 24/7's image, calling it "incredibly racist."
The picture caused outrage on Twitter with views ranging from "sick" to "awful, racist misogyny."
