Ryan Reynolds fans have taken Twitter by storm by sharing a screenshot of the ad. One wrote, “This is the worst kind of marketing,” another one wrote, “you cannot convince me a woman wrote this.” One of the tweets read as , “they’ve done it. I’m officially terrified of underwear now.”
Now, Harper Wilde has issued an apology to Ryan Reynolds and talked about the ad campaign while reacting to the tweet. They wrote, “For context, this is actually a review by a real customer originally meant to run with a series of other reviews – we thought it was cheeky enough to run as an ad, but the attribution was cut off at the bottom by the ad interface (original ad series attached!).”
Harper Wilde further continued, “The core of our brand is ultimately about designing bras by b**b-havers for b**b-havers while diving from the male gaze. While we clearly have customers who are straight women, this single review doesn’t represent our entire brand. Our small team is 99% women and we absolutely do not condone creepy non-consensual boob-grabbing of any kind, even in a figurative hypothetical bra-review. We’re so sorry this creeped anyone out Absolutely not our intention and we’ve pulled the ad from running.”
Hi! Our team is 99% women and we absolutely do not condone creepy non-consensual boob-grabbing of any kind, even in a figurative hypothetical bra-review. We’re very very sorry this creeped anyone out! Absolutely not our intention and we’ve pulled the ad moving forward.
