Gillette Stands Behind Ad Featuring Plus-Size Model After Widespread Outrage

Gillette Stands Behind Ad Featuring Plus-Size Model After Widespread Outrage

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (WISH) - An ad for Gillette's Venus razor featuring a plus-size model is sparking outrage.

It shows 33-year-old Anna O'Brien frolicking in the ocean, with the inspiring message: "Go out there and slay the day."

But not everyone is happy.

"Imagine how many razors she goes through," one person wrote on social media.

"Wow! This is so unhealthy," was another message.

"Please stop. Being unhealthy is not a good thing," said another person on social media.

The Instagram star with more than 300,000 followers spoke out to "Good Morning America" Thursday about the backlash.

"For a lot of people, all they can see is fat. They don't see the joy. They don't see the happiness," O'Brien said. "At the end of the day, bodies are bodies. There are so many different types of them.

"This is all that this is about."

Gillette is standing behind the controversial ad, saying "all types of beautiful skin deserve to be shown."

Gillette seems to have something more important than profit in their agenda. Well, down they go.

You're right.  It seems they are trying to redefine what men should be and what they should like.  You know, remove the "toxicity".  I don't think men want to sign up for this...soyboys maybe, but not men.

Gillette is just another TM given the Social Engineering task. Can we guess who's paying their losses for doing that?

Plus-size?

God, the photo of that hog wearing a wig was an image I didn't need in my mind! Don't know how many Playboys I'll have to read to forget it!
