A massive controversy has erupted recently when Fox and ABC both censored this commercial, and are refusing to play it during their 7-9pm primetime slot. ABC offered Lane Bryant a later time slot, during the last ten minutes of Dancing With the Stars, if they would only make some heavy edits. Meanwhile, Victoria’s Secret ads are on both networks during prime-time, despite showing more (while simultaneously less) skin. Gee, I wonder if there’s a reason for this huge double-standard? It must be a large reason, whatever it is, considering how glaringly obvious the injustice.
Hat tip to reader Miranda for pointing this one out.
