Victoria's Secret "Bright Young Things" Campaign Outrages Some Parents
The lingerie giant is under fire by some parents who say they're marketing sexuality to girls who are too young. INSIDE EDITION has Victoria's Secret's response.
Moms across the USA are in uproar over Victoria's Secret's new "Bright Young Things" ad campaign.
Angry parents are blasting the company's Facebook page claiming the campaign is aimed at girls way too young to be wearing Victoria's Secret lingerie.
The 'PINK' collection features lacy underwear with phrases like "I get around" "Let's get a room" and "Call me" on the front and back.
Emma Bazilian from Adweek weighed in, saying, "It's definitely meant to appeal to a younger audience because no woman over the age of 25, for instance, would probably be wearing a pair of bright pink underwear that say 'Call me' on the back."
One mom wrote on the company's Facebook page, "It is disgusting to market that level of sexually suggestive item to girls."
"Now in preteen sizes, Sickening!" wrote another.
There's even a petition to force Victoria's Secret to pull the campaign.
Victoria's Secret is denying the collection is aimed at young girls, saying in a statement, "Victoria's Secret PINK is a brand for college-aged women. We have no plans to introduce a collection for younger women."
Another controversial new ad is coming under fire. It's from Nike and featuries Tiger Woods with the slogan, "Winning takes care of everything."
Woods just regained his title as the world's number one golfer, and critics said Nike is suggesting that winning makes up for the damage caused by his sex scandal.
"A lot of people are saying that they think it clearly is a reference to the fact that he has no remorse over what's happened in his personal life. But a lot of other people who are Tiger Woods fans are happy for him that he's back on top," Bazilian said.
