Nissin takes down Osaka ad after backlash

Naomi Osaka did two things exceedingly well in the last two weeks: claiming her second Grand Slam title and reaching the world No. 1 ranking.

She also had another smart move during the Australian Open. When questioned by media members after her tough, three-set semifinal victory over Karolina Pliskova, Osaka offered thoughts about Nissin Food Holdings’ recent ad. The Japanese company and sponsor of hers since late 2016 depicted her with a pale complexion and light brown hair in an animated advertisement.

”I’ve talked to them,” Osaka said in the press conference. “They’ve apologized. It’s obvious, I’m tan. It’s pretty obvious.”
