Another Insecure F*cktard>>>London Mayor Wants to Ban ‘Beach Body’ Ads — The Cut

Last year, fitness and nutrition brand Protein World stirred-up controversy with their quasi-dystopian advertising campaign in which an extremely thin and fit model stared at passerby, accompanied by the text “Are you beach body ready?” (Think: “Big Brother Is Watching You,” but for body-shaming.)

The ads originated in London, then made their way to New York, but if newly elected London Mayor Sadiq Khan has anything to say about it, they won’t stay in London for long. Khan told Transport for London, the government body responsible for local transportation, to cease running the ads in the subway.
