Do you Think These Ads Are “OFFENSIVE?”

Lane Bryant is trying to roll out a sexy new ad starring Ashley Graham and other plus-sized models wearing almost nothing … but tv spots aren’t having it. Yes, networks including ABC and NBC are rejecting a sexy plus-sized TV Ad, which is basically a video version of what you see here.

TMZ has obtained the un-aired commercial, which you can check out HERE.  Nobody knows specifics of what made the commercial un-airable, though sources firmly believe it’s a size issue and not nudity, since thinner women frequently appear in commercials where they’re half-naked and objectified.

All I have to say is how disappointing.  These are major networks and should absolutely be promoting body equality and body positivity. It feels like major networks want to go far…just not far enough for true equality.
