UK Bans American Apparel Ad (NSFW)

american apparel banned uk vice ad nsfw

Because it “could be seen to sexualise a model who appeared to be a child.” American Apparel argues that the model is 23.

I know a girl who turns 23 tomorrow; she does not appear to be a child.

Poor American Apparel.

    The American Apparel ads remnd me of that creepy scene in the movie “Fame” When that girl (Irene something?) is auditioning for a “part” and some creepy guy makes her take off her clothes and she ends up in tears.

    I completely agree with the UK banning this ad. I would never ever buy anything from American Apparel because of their repulsive pedophellic ad campaigns. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that all of his models “look” like children being sexualized. The owner of American Apparel is so bloody creepy!!!! It’s really too bad, because his initial ideas about the way he would like to run his business were very admirable.

    I don’t get it, how does this model look like a little girl?

    Is your opinion like the recent Australian ban on naked women with small breats because small breasts are somehow “childish”? kinda lame.

    Sure… school girl fetish weird shit, I get that. But a early 20-something in a hoodie? what?
