Lululemon and A&F fire back at their own customers for being too fat.  Wet Seal puts a Down's kid in its ads.

Who has the branding problem?

iron de havilland: 1. Great marketing campaign.
2. The "dust" cliche grinds my gears. If you're actually sat at your computer weeping after reading something like TFA, you may need mood stabilisers like lithium or similar.


"Stop being moved by what doesn't move me." That about sum it up?

OK, I'll be that guy.  It was this girl's dream to be objectified and this wish was granted by the graces of a company running a smart PR campaign and catering to the sympathy of strangers.

Kinda cool?  Fine.  Beyond that, how is this not at best just a nice bit of fun for all involved?

Met Karrie and her mother when they visited LA for the Wet Seal photo shoot and Oscar Red Carpet gifting.  Karrie is a very charming and determined young lady and her Mom is a sweet and loving human being who is looking out for her youngest daughter.  They are genuine and unassuming and deserve the big breaks and kudos coming their way.

After the shoot she was fired for showing up tardy.

I'm glad Wet Seal didn't disappoint her.

I'd hate for her to get down.

Pattuq: She doesn't look as retarded as many with Downs do.


Which is why Wet Seal agreed to it.

If she had a pronounced forehead, Bassett Hound eyes, and sausage fingers they would have ignored her.

omeganuepsilon: jaytkay: I was afraid people wouldn't rush in to poop all over some young girl's happy day.

Her day?  Like the 99.99999% of the world that she has no idea about or will ever see, has to just stop functioning?

Most people are totally oblivious as to what's said about them on fark.  We're not crapping on anyone's day.

Go die a horrible death, retard.


I'm glad I'm not a thin-skinned unpleasant asshole. That must be very difficult.

I was going to come in here and lambast all of the inevitable retarded jokes, but then I thought, no. I'll just let this beautiful girl's attitude speak in my place.

This is not the first time this story has floated around the internet.  Wet Seal's sales must be down. Time to remind people about that one time they put a Downs girl in their ads.

That's truly awesome.

Was I the only one that first thought Wet Seal was some sort of concrete sealer?  I wonder what THAT photoshoot would look like...

Man this teared me up. As an amateur photographer who has been lucky enough to do professional shots on occasion with beautiful professional models this is so wonderful.
