The model featured in one of Burger King’s infamously suggestive ads for the BK Super Seven Incher has said the company used her image without her permission. In a statement, the woman said that she was publicly humiliated and calls for people to boycott.
objectifying and sexualizing women and their bodies without their consent = capitalism
Another quote from the model:
“There is something VERY wrong with the fact that they felt entitled to do that to my face without signing a contract with me.
I believe in sexual expression in art and the media; it’s beautiful and necessary for a healthy society but IT MUST BE CONSENSUAL otherwise it’s RAPE.”
As someone who has survived sexual assaults, I do not in any way feel like this model is out of place at all (nor is she appropriating anyone else’s pain or experiences) in describing the situation this way. I 100% agree with her.
