"Orange is the New Black" star Danielle Brooks is not letting Dove's offensive ad get away without her insight.
"Scrub your knees. Don't forget your elbows. Use more soap," Brooks began the letter.
The 28-year-old explained that she was raised to love her body and to not see her skin color as "dirty." The world, however, has a different agenda.
She wrote that there's a "vicious monster" determined to make "little black and brown children" feel as though their skin color is less important in the world.
"You're telling me my skin, the deep, rich melanin that I was born with and cannot change, is filthy. Got it," she said.
The actress acknowledged that the company took ownership of its mistake, but pointed out that it was too little, too late, despite being part of one of Dove's campaigns in the past.
