…were Unhealthily Overweight?

Three of Nasty Gal’s ad campaigns are banned from U.K. because scenes “placed focus on her chest where her rib cage was visible and appeared prominent”.

Nasty Gal’s Ads Banned in the U.K. Because Model Appeared ‘Unhealthily Underweight’

Three of Nasty Gal’s television commercials were banned in the U.K. by the country’s Advertising Standards Authority board due to the unhealthy appearance of the model starring in the ads.

According to a new ruling by the ASA, there were 22 complaints by people who thought the model looked “unhealthily thin,” which raised the question of whether or not the commercial was “socially irresponsible.”

So….Say You Were “Unhealthily Overweight”, and 22 people “complained” about you looking “unhealthily thick”? Would your commercials be banned?? Probably not! Is that a double standard?
