    I bet if the women on the ads were fat they wouldn't be protesting against it.

    I think this is one of those issues that people going for the "progressive" approach have a less objective point of view. Would they also be against it if the model was doing something more athletic than just standing there?

    No one would look. I would vomit for sure
    FAT IS UGLY....mostly because it will kill you faster being OBESE.

    This must be ugly, as well, following the same logic, mostly because it would kill me faster THAN being obese icon_lol.gif

    That ban wasn't about banning hot women to please feminists.

    The advertising suggested that in order to be beach body ready you needed to look like the model.

    Which is offensive to suggest that only modelesque women deserve to be seen at the beach.
    There is enough pressure on women and young girls about their looks without having this blatant slap in the face advertising.

    Well, what the hell else could "beach body ready" possibly mean?

    Aside from poster defacing, did they object to THIS ad by the same company?

    This looks photoshopped.
    I don't recall seeing this poster.

    Yawn. This is just a rehash of an uncannily similar thread by AaronH20P last year (Whatever happened to him?).

    The ad in question was banned by the Advertising Standards Authority due to misleading weight loss claims therein.

    Regarding the separate matter of the alleged offensiveness of the ad, the ASA ruled the ad was unlikely to cause serious widespread offence and so was not in breach of the Code of Advertising Practice in that respect.
