American Apparel in trouble over sexy thigh-highs

American Apparel’s in trouble again with the UK’s ad regulatory body the ASA, this time for ‘overtly sexual’ images on its website. To its great delight, no doubt.

These are deemed to be ‘voyeuristc’ and to ‘objectify women,’ among other shocking crimes. So they’ve been banned.

I don’t know how to put this politely – but do ladies have to keep their legs closed at all times?

It would be a dull old world.
