Two Calvin Klein ads feature (a lot of) Jeremy Allen White & FKA Twigs. Guess which one got Banned?

This vaguely “NSFW” FKA Twigs Calvin Klein Ad is Banned in the UK. A similar one of a man isn’t.

To my mind, it’s wonderful that women and others are loving sexy Jeremy. To my mind, it’s wonderful that FKA Twigs, after everything she’s gone through (look it up, if brave and curious), is celebrating her body. ~ ed.

Two NSFW Calvin Klein ads. One man, one woman. Guess which one is banned?

I don’t see anything objectionable with either ad. Love ’em or not, it’s a fashion ad. A lot of body, with both. Who cares? Is this leftover puritanism against women?

Sure seems like it.

When will we get tired of this story?

The Advertising Standards Authority banned FKA’s ad because it “placed viewers’ focus on the model’s body rather than on the clothing being advertised.” The ad “was irresponsible and likely to cause serious offense.”

“I do not see the ‘stereotypical sexual object’ that they have labelled me. I see a beautiful strong woman of colour whose incredible body has overcome more pain than you can imagine. In light of reviewing other campaigns past and current of this nature, I can’t help but feel there are some double standards here.”

Jeremy Allen White's Calvin Klein Ad Generates $12.7 Million in MIV – WWD

“Shortly after a British advertising watchdog group ruled that Calvin Klein posters showing the singer FKA twigs with part of her breast exposed “presented her as a stereotypical sexual object” and could not be shown in Britain, the singer denounced “double standards” on Instagram, an apparent reference to a new Calvin Klein campaign featuring the actor Jeremy Allen White.” ~ NY Times
