Very little in our lives is quite as entertaining as when schoolmarmish hate group “One Million Moms” get their one million panties in a bunch.
Now, you can add inexpensive clothier H&M to the list of offenders, and not because you can buy a lifetime supply of black polo shirts there for only $55.
What’s earned their wrath is their new “She’s A Lady” campaign, which features a handful of different women — many of which are wearing “skimpy lingerie” and two of whom share an underwater kiss.
Here’s a taste of the statement One Milllion Moms concocted on her Smith-Corona:
1MM is not sure of H&M clothing company’s thought process behind their new television ad, but if they are attempting to offend customers and families, they have succeeded. H&M’s newest “She’s A Lady” commercial includes a woman wearing skimpy lingerie and ends with two teenage girls kissing while underwater. Parents find this type of advertising inappropriate and unnecessary especially since H&M’s target market is teens.
As Pink News reports, an earlier version of the statement attacked H&M for including “what appears to be a man dressed as a woman in one segment,” but the model is actually the boxer Fatima Pinto, a cisgender woman.
An H&M spokesperson weighed in on the non-controversy, telling The Huffington Post:
With this campaign we want to celebrate diversity and encourage women around the world to be who they truly are. We don’t take a religious or political stand, but we want to show H&M is all about inclusiveness and diversity. We want to inspire customers to be true to self and dress their personal style. Everyone is welcome at H&M.”
We’ll let you know the second One Million Moms slither out from beneath their one million stones again in their eternal quest to be one million irritating little buzzkills.
