Lane Bryant Ad Banned by Fox & ABC?!
Mega plus size retailer, Lane Bryant is furious over the alleged banning of their latest commercial by major networks like FOX and ABC. The ad in question features Plus Supermodel Ashley Graham clothed primarily in her beautiful Lane Bryant Cacique lingerie as she prepares for a date.
LB is claiming that the only reason they’re being shut out is because the model featured in the as is plus sized. Ashley is a full size 16 and every bit is stunning.
Here’s what they had to say:
“ABC and Fox have made the decision to define beauty for you by denying our new, groundbreaking Cacique commercial from airing freely on their networks,”
ABC “restricted our airtime” by denying it a slot during “Dancing with the Stars,” while Fox “demanded excessive re-edits and rebuffed it three times before relenting to air it during the final 10 minutes of ‘American Idol,’ but only after we threatened to pull the ad buy.”
ABC had this to say:
“Their statements are not true, the ad was accepted. Lane Bryant was treated absolutely no differently than any advertiser for the same product. We were willing to accommodate them, but they chose to seek publicity instead.”
Take a look at the commercial…
Is it any wilder than an ad for Victoria’s Secret? Hardly.
