anything to sell a sweater

This [via the F word] actually made my jaw drop.

Benetton cant seriously think they are highlighting the plight of abused women by 'using' them to advertise their overpriced and frankly ugly clothing can they?

If this was a serious campaign, with money heading in the direction of shelters and organisations for victims of domestic violence, then I may be able to forgive the unsavoury fashion house. However as this seems to not be the case and they are still peddling their expensive , [probably sweat shop produced] clothing to the world, I would urge all to steer well clear of them.

They have just been double added to my list of hideous capitalist greed vs ethical consumerism in the NAY column.
