Earlier on in the semester, I remember us discussing the controversy around the Lane Bryant ad /commercial that featured the plus size women being rejected by major networks. Networks such as ABC and NBC never provided reasoning as to why they rejected the ad but many people believed it was due to the models being curvy or plus sized. I mean there isn’t any other reason to reject it right?! They can’t blame it on nudity because all of the lingerie included in the ad cover up more parts of the body, than those you may see in Victoria’s Secret ads. Not only that but come on, its 2016….there’s been things way worse that’s been aired on major networks but an ad that promotes self-confidence, self-love, and beauty is shot down. It’s unfortunate that such a body-positive ad never got a chance to make it to these networks (take a look at the campaign by clicking HERE )
However, I stumbled across an article today titled “Joe Jonas chose plus-size model Ashley Graham to be his new video babe” and was quite happy to see this…..
All I could say was one word….YASSSSSSSSS!!!!! lol
