Roman Abramovich’s partner sparks outrage after controversial picture

Published 21/01/2014 | 10:35

Roman Abramovich, Russian billionaire and owner of Chelsea Football Club Ltd., left, and his girlfriend Dasha Zhukova attend Art Basel in Hong Kong.

Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich's partner has sparked an internet controversy after a picture was published of her sitting on a half-naked black woman.

The contentious picture was published online and shows Dasha Zhukova sitting on a chair made to resemble a half-naked black woman - on Martin Luther King Day.

Buro 24/7 used the offensive image to illustrate an unrelated interview about the former model's new magazine, Garage. Miroslava Duma, the blog's editor, also posted the insensitive photo on Instagram.

The pictures were quickly removed, but not before it sparked intense criticism and debate online.

Zhukova, staring at the camera, appears the complete opposite of the black woman she's weighing down and has come under fire for the offensive image, along with the magazine.
