Social media users praised Huggies for featuring a black father and his daughter on its latest packaging.
For the first time in the diapers company’s history, it featured a family of color. Huggies was known to feature only white babies and parents in its ads in the past. This move towards diversity certainly garnered attention from the media.
Leading the praise is Joe Flowers Jr., who shared a photo of the packaging on Facebook. The photo went viral, raking over 10,000 likes and comments by social media users. Aside from diversity, many are applauding the ad for featuring a father, instead of the common advertisements that focus on mothers and children only.
The father and daughter duo is part of Huggies’ new eco-friendly range of diapers made from plant-based materials derived from sugarcane.
Huggies done went and put a black father on the package of their diapers. This is a first in history look how far we’ve come. I’m about to buy these for no reason whatsoever.Posted by Joe Flowers Jr. on Tuesday, July 2, 2019
