Cosmetic giants removing the word 'whitening' from products, realtor association stops using the word 'master bedroom'

Brands have axed problematic marketing in recent weeks, including Eskimo PiesUncle Ben's, and Aunt Jemima. Now, companies are discontinuing the use of certain words that they believe could potentially offend. The words "whitening," "fair," and "master bedroom" are allegedly considered controversial.

The Houston Association of Realtors will no longer use the word "master" to describe bedrooms and bathrooms on real estate listings. Instead, the term "primary" will be used in its place.
The word "master bedroom" is allegedly problematic because some believe the adjective carries connotations to slavery and slave masters. The change in nomenclature reportedly happened after several members of the HAR complained that the word "master" is insensitive.
The HAR said it had only banned the word "master" on MLS listings, but members could still use the word in photo descriptions or marketing materials.
The Court of Master Sommeliers, which "sets the global standard of excellence for beverage service within the hospitality industry," will stop using the term "master sommelier."
