Talc Lawsuit: Johnson & Johnson Targeted Black Women
August 6, 2021
A new lawsuit filed in New Jersey against Johnson & Johnson adds a new charge to the usual complaints of talcum powder: racial targeting. According to statements made by civil rights attorneys Ben Crump and Paul Napoli, not only did Johnson & Johnson know that their talcum powder could cause ovarian cancer, they claim that the company intentionally targeted black women with their advertisements.
In addition to asking for legal fees and damages, Crump and Napoli are requesting “equally targeted corrective outreach to the Black community” as one of the aims of the lawsuit.
