Christian conservative group One
Million Moms has deleted a post in which they incorrectly described a
female boxer as a transgender woman.
In the post, titled H&M is PC in
Newest Commercial, the group calls for a boycott of H&M over
a commercial it released last week which features a range of women
modeling H&M clothing, including Fatima Pinto, a martial arts
(Muay Thai) champion. The ad also includes a kiss between two young
“1MM is not sure of H&M clothing
company's thought process behind their new television ad, but if they
are attempting to offend customers and families, they have
succeeded,” the group wrote.
The commercial “includes what appears
to be a man dressed as a woman.”
“Parents find this type of
advertising inappropriate and unnecessary especially since H&M's
target market is teens.”
“H&M Marketing Team may have
thought this type of advertising was politically correct, but not
only is it disgusting and confusing for children, it is pushing the
LGBT agenda,” the group added.
The group pulled the post after
pointed out that the “man dressed as a woman” was Pinto, who
is not transgender. The group seems to have overlooked model Hari
Nef, who briefly appears in the ad and is transgender.
