One of the most popular comments left on the Instagram video is, “Absolutely not delving into the problem, and that’s why many see it as a mockery of the current situation in the world. The only purpose of this video was to brighten up the brand and each person’s public image. to be an inclusive brand? Produces abnormally overpriced clothes for only one size slim women, pushing for femininity and complexes that you can only be a woman through sex appeal, gesture, crying and velvet pencil cases? Where is this equality in your brand where there is no other race or plus size models, not crumbs of reality. Get out of your pink bubble finally. ”
“We sit at home and sing a song in the hope of getting Instagram money from the views, while people are killed on the street every day because of their skin color. Wow, “Amoralle, “you’re both so great woke. Erase that idiocy, close your mouth and donate money to people who can’t afford to sit at home and sing, “said another comment.
One of the people involved in the video – radio personality Sanda Dejus points out that she sang her song line already in April, which shows that this video was most likely intended for a different purpose than in the current context in the United States.
The company itself has not participated in the discussions.
