SASSYBELLA.com â€º Edit â€” WordPressave pulled their latest ad which shows a man pinning a woman by her wrists received widespread criticism claiming that it condoned violence against women, pictured above.”We have decided to cancel … the advertising image that has caused such repercussions within human interest groups and individuals,” Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana said in an emailed statement.
Though this wasnâ€™t their stance last week when they defended the “artistic” ad against criticism from the Spanish Government and said Spain was “a bit behind the times”.
“We were looking to recreate a game of seduction in the campaign and highlight the beauty of our collections,” the designers said.
“It was never our intention to … offend anyone or promote violence against women.”
Shame all this debate about the ad has come down to this, while I was initially shocked when I saw the ad, Dolce & Gabbana are just not the kind of designers who would promote violence against women. Considering they designer ultra sexy clothes for women.
When this whole debate errupted a in January this year I didn’t think it would come this far.[Via TheAge.com.au]
