ABC Turns Down Lane Bryant Commercial and Accepts Victoria's Secret 2010-04-22 10:11:52

ABC Says No to Plus Lingerie Models, Yes to Skinny Ones

It seems everywhere you turn these days there's some controversy over plus-size models. Yesterday Garance Doré made some comments that set people off, and now ABC is getting flak for refusing to air plus-size Lane Bryant lingerie ads on its network. Apparently the network said no to airing Lane Bryant lingerie ads during Dancing With the Stars because they were too racy. However, it ran Victoria's Secret lingerie commercials during American Idol. When ABC asked Lane Bryant models to show less skin, the brand turned down the request, stating that its ads are no more risque than Victoria's Secret ones. Talk about drama! What do you make of all of this?

Check out the commercial ABC did not want you to see.
