Online dating site match.com has taken down subway posters in the U.K. after complaints that they were criticizing people with red hair and freckles. The poster shows a close-up of a red-haired, freckled woman and a caption underneath: “If you don’t like your imperfections, someone else will”.
People took great offence to the ads, claiming it was a form of racism and that it just causes problems for children with red hair, etc. Match.com apologized to anyone offended and explained that they think red hair and freckles are beautiful.
Apparently redheads have more of a tough time in the U.K. But do you agree that this was bullying? Is this poster offensive?
