Ruby, the antithesis of Barbie, is now 10 years old
For those who missed it, Barbies manufacturer Mattel sent The Body Shop a cease and desist order after posters featuring Ruby - a self proclaimed Anti-Barbie spokesperson started appearing in American shop windows. This banned advertisement was also forbidden to be hung up in the Hong Kong Mass Transit Railway. The complaints included her “nude and nippless figure” being exposed to the public which offended people in the US and China.
This was an ad made by bodyshop. But Barbie INC. found out about it and now it’s banned. Reblog if you think this ad deserves to be seen.
I’m not the only one that wants a doll like this, right?
