From Truth Revolt: ‘Tis the season of outrage.
Bloomingdale’s is the latest target for an ad in their holiday catalog.
Here’s the ad:
The caption on the ad reads, “Spike your best friend’s egg nog when they’re not looking.”
TechInsider explains, “Though the “best friend” could be the woman in the ad or another person not pictured, either way, insinuating that over-serving someone as a way to get the girl, is totally inappropriate.”
“In reflection of recent feedback, the copy we used in our recent catalog was inappropriate and in poor taste. Bloomingdales’ sincerely apologizes for this error in judgment,” a brand representative told Tech Insider.
People hit social media to air their outrage over the ad.
That Bloomingdales ad is horrific. How was that ever approved let alone thought of as a good idea?! Despicable.
