False Advertising

People are freaking out about a woman’s freak out after she saw a picture of a skinny model attached to an Amazon ad for plus-sized leggings.

For me, this isn’t about body shaming or name calling. It’s about false advertising. The model shown is clearly not plus-size, and her leggings are clearly not plus-sized leggings. The woman making the purchase only wanted to see what the product might look on her. Is that so wrong?!

Look, I don’t really shop online much, but if I, say, buy a men’s golf shirt, I want to see a guy wearing it, not some little boy! I just want to get an accurate representation of the purchase. Count yet another fail for Amazon!
