Back in the day, and by “day” we mean a good 50 years ago, it was popular for women to shop from the comfort of their own homes. When it was de riguer to have a Sears catalog waiting close at hand on the coffee table, magazines jumped to fill their blank spaces with ads, like the ones we discovered while flipping through a January 1956 issue of Cosmopolitan.
New York’s WPIX caught up with Ashley Graham, the model featured in the now infamously contentious Lane Bryant lingerie commercial, and got her take on the whole debacle. Unsurprisingly, she’s upset.
Earlier this week, Lane Bryant published a blog post accusing ABC and Fox networks of censoring an ad for their new lingerie line and refusing to air it during primetime hours. Now the brand has released documents showing that ABC did indeed restrict the commercial to “daytime dramas” or post-9PM.
Earlier today, news broke that Lane Bryant was waging war against ABC and Fox networks for allegedly censoring a lingerie commercial for the plus-size brand’s new Cacique line. Lane Bryant had posted the commercial in question to YouTube, but as of our coverage the video had been removed. Well, now it’s back up and we have one question: why on earth would ABC and Fox refuse to run this?
Lane Bryant is waging war against Fox and ABC, accusing them of censoring a 30-second ad spot for their new Cacique line of lingerie.
