ralph-lauren-boycott-facebook-fan-pageAs of 4:04 pm EST, the “Boycott Ralph Lauren” Facebook Fan Page has 2,245 fans. The amazing thing about this fan page is that it was started only 24 hours ago!

This Facebook Fan Page is a great example of what can happen when people are willing to come together and support a cause, a message, or a poduct – or in this case, take a stand against all of the above.

Here’s some more insight into the Boycott Ralph Lauren Fan Page:

“In late September, an ad by fashion giant Ralph Lauren surfaced in the United States showing an image of recently fired Filippa Hamilton that was so drastically retouched that the 120 lb 23 year old model looked sickly, emaciated, and almost alien.”

The page was started by Darryl Roberts, the producer of the documentary “America The Beautiful” where he brings light to the unhealthy obsession with beauty in America.

I'm sorry, but why is the face of the anti-Ralph Lauren movement someone right up Ralph's alley? The girl is gorgeous. Pick someone else, someone realistic.

Hi Cody – that's the image that was altered by photoshop on one of Ralph Lauren's ads. She is really the poster model that launched this whole movement. Actually, her image just happened to be the straw that broke the camel's back – there were quite a few images before her, but her's really set this thing in motion.

Thanks for commenting!

Hi Evelyn! I see that – it's very exciting and encouraging to see so many people coming together to support this cause… thanks so much for visiting my blog and posting your comment, I really appreciate it!
