J Crew Ad controversy?
Permalink Closed


Apparently this ad is drawing some controversy.  I'm not sure why people are in such an uproar over a little boy having his toenails painted pink. It's just nail polish and he looks all of maybe 5/6 years old.

I saw someone's facebook about this but I had no idea what ad they were talking about. Personally, kids are just kids and this ad doesn't bother me one bit.

People are really looking for any little thing to jump on these days.  With the prolonged economic misfortune, natural disasters, unrest in different regions of the world, a few people are starting to become conspiracy theorists.  And many of these people have big mouths.

FWIW...J-Bug routinely wants to join in on the painting...I'll do his in blue or green, but whatevs...if he requested pink I'd totally do it for the weekend and just clean it off before sending him to school.

I saw it on facebook too. I figure a little pink paint (or any color for that matter) isn't hurting anything - May as well go for it!

I think it's adorable. My coworker's son is about that age and loves to have his fingers and toes painted.

Our culture is so diseased at times...manufacturing outrage over this of all things is lame.

I don't see the big deal. I think children see them as decorative paint.

I remember seeing that ad and thinking it was a bit odd - but cute. People are so uptight these days. This is not near as objectionable as many of those out there.

Oh for crap's sake. The controversy over this is ridiculous. There are really better things for people to focus their time and energy on than this.
