ABC and Fox ban a Lane Bryant ‘Big girl’ underwear commercial……

Wait…..do they ban size ‘0’ Victoria Secret underwear commercials?

And since we know that all those American mothers out there who have kids are size zero……

I guess they just gotta watch all these starved model’s dance around, right?

I still don’t get why this country won’t admit that most of it’s beautiful and sexy females aren’t walking sticks??????

Lane


The Big Girls aren’t welcome on The Alphabet: Plus-size label Lane Bryant says that a commercial advertising their new line of lingerie has been rejected by ABC and FOX.

More……..

Lane Bryant’s controversial new lingerie ad, featuring busty, plus-sized models, will finally air on Fox next Wednesday, during the closing minutes of the 9 p.m. edition of “American Idol.”

The women’s clothing manufacturer had claimed both Fox and ABC objected to the commercial’s content.

Though the commercial will now air on “Idol,” both client and media still seem peeved. Lane Bryant has accused the networks of bias against large-size women and their cleavages — and the networks have denied such claims, accusing Lane Bryant of trying to milk a non-story for publicity purposes.

Lane Bryant took its battle to the blogosphere Tuesday with a rather testy entry on its Inside Curve venue, lambasting Fox and ABC for resisting efforts to place the ad in shows including “Dancing With the Stars” and “Idol.”

It complained that it was being treated differently from Victoria’s Secret, which has aired spots on both networks. The company said it was “disappointed” that Fox rejected the ad three times.

More from ABC……..

  1. In my opinion the ad did not show too much. Anyone can see more if they watch prime time TV shows. The female dancers on “Dancing with the Stars” wear less. Other ads use sex to sell everything. For whatever reason, ABC and Fox really blew it.
