“We hear you. We see you. We’re listening to you. We are committed to launching a range of bandages in light, medium, and deep shades off Brown and Black skin tones that embrace the beauty of diverse skin. We are dedicated to inclusivity and providing the best healing solutions, better representing you”, stated the brand on social media. 

Many people took to Twitter to vocalize their thoughts over the brand’s sudden recognition of Black skin. Some even called out the brand for following in the footsteps of the bandage company called ‘TruColour’. 

“Don’t celebrate BandAid’s attempt at diversity inclusion. Everyone is acting like this is so groundbreaking. TruColour has been around since 2014, been in Targets around the country for 2 years, AND have Black people on their leadership team. So plz support the ORIGINALS”, A Twitter user stated.
