I just found out about the latest controversy coming out of Benetton and their “UNHATE” ad campaign. Here are some of these ads:
What do you think? Offensive? Funny?
I personally am not offended by this and I feel like the majority of the time anything that stirs up emotions and promotes discussion and thought is a worthwhile endeavor. I suppose in this case it is interesting that this is coming from a fashion company, but let’s not forget that Benetton has a history of such ads.
Just to let you know Benetton has now pulled the top ad featuring Pope Benedict XVI after the Vatican called it “an unacceptable provocation”.
What do you think?
