D & G Ad promotes gang rape?



D & G's latest ad is causing a lot of controversy - people are calling it extremely distasteful as it seems to depict a gang rape. I can see where they are coming from, you got a dude pinning down a girl while 3 other men look on. And the girl doesn't seem like she's having a ball of a time.

I don't think that it was their intention to make it seem that way, but then again God knows what they were trying to sell with this concept. If it was me, I would have switched it around and replaced the guys with women and vice versa, that would have made it pretty cool!

What say you?

Dude on the right has some really nice abs though.

  1. this is awful, what kind of society do we live in if we condemn this, how disgraceful. I would never want to buy D%G again, ever.

  2. this is awful, the whole class was shocked when this was discussed. We are criminological students and this portrays the sick society we are in to accept something like that.
