LANE BRYANT: #THISBODY AD REJECTED By TV NETWORKS!!!
PLUS SIZE Retailer LANE BRYANT has been pushing the envelope recently, with more racy ad campaigns promoting full-figured bodies!!!
Their latest campaign, titled THIS BODY, promotes a body-positive message to their clients and champions plus-size women flaunting their figures.
TMZ reports their most recent TV Ad for the THIS BODY campaign was rejected by two major TV networks: ABC and NBC.
The commercial shows PLUS Models Chocolate-Covered PRECIOUS LEE (above photo), ASHLEY GRAHAM (bottom photo), DENISE BIDOT, GEORGIA PRATT, and TARA LYNN in various states of dress and undress, participating in various activities (including BREASTFEEDING), and voicing their own BODY POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS.
We're told neither provided specifics about what crossed the line ... other than to say they were turning it down "as is."
Our sources firmly believe it's a size issue and not nudity ... since thinner women frequently appear in commercials which are already airing. Think Victoria's Secret.
NBC says it's asked Lane Bryant to make "minor edit to comply with broadcast indecency guidelines." It would not say what specifically was indecent about the ad.
We also reached out to ABC, but so far ... radio silence.
PLEASE watch the unaired commercial and decide for yourself. -CCG
