Owner of the honey pot faces huge backlash

         Recently Target released a commercial with Beatrice Dixon, owner of The Honey Pot. A company that sells a variety of sanitary and hygienic items for women.  In the commercial Dixon said, "It's important for honey pot to do well, so the next black girl that comes up with a great idea, can have a great opportunity".
After this commercial aired Dixon received backlash from non-women of color.  Who felt left out when Dixon made her statement regarding black girls. Personally, I don't think she was wrong. People and women of all colors need to be able to admire to role models who look like they do.
As a result all of Dixon's "The Honey Pot" products have been selling out. Shelves have been left empty, and even the website is sold out.  Everything is on back order.  Her supporters showed up and showed out.
