sorry it turns out I double checked and yes it's graffiti. They latter replace the ad with a model who has wearing a top.
"Leslie Goldman writes about that American Apparel billboard ad, with the woman with her back to the camera, her legs spread out, in which someone has cheekily sprayed the words “Gee, I wonder why women get raped”, the question mark between her thighs."

a lot of people found this ad offensive/shocking I remember seen it in the newspapers all the way from Canada to Mexico.
watch-trend.com

I tough it had a strong message.


An anti-domestic violence advert starring Keira Knightley has been banned from British television after it was branded too violent by advertising censors.


"The " Pirates Of The Caribbean " star plays an actress returning home from a film set to be confronted by a violent boyfriend who accuses her of having an affair with a co-star, before attacking and knocking her to the floor, reports contactmusic.com.

The ad, made for UK charity Women's Aid, ends with Keira being repeatedly kicked on the floor. Advertising approval body Clearcast has deemed the scene too violent for broadcast.

The ad, called " The Cut ", was launched in British cinemas this month but will only air on television if scenes showing Keira being thrown to the floor and beaten are removed"

I don't understand why they banned Keira's advert. Showing the violence was actually the point! I thought it was a strong way to get the message through.

No she wasn't. Those are real pictures, taken by Oliviero Toscani, and the girl is a french girl named Isabel Caro. I took these pics as an example of anorexix women for an exam and i got really inot her story. She has been battling anorexia for more then 15 years and she only weighs 66 pounds now. She accepted to be part of the commercial because she wanted to be an example of what girls shouldnt look like..so it might be very strong..but i think she was very brave.

Yeah, the anorexia ad is totally real. I remember reading an article about it and actually seeing the woman in the ad. It's so sad
The violence advert with Keira is really strong, but I don't see why it needed to be banned. The fact that it's shocking and cringing to see brings the message across that yes domestic violence exists and it needs to be stopped. I also remember seeing a domestic violence ad/psa towards men where it had a man being beat, but I totally forgot where I saw it.

True. Sometimes with provocative ads you can relay a message. It is sort of how children's charity works. The old man or a women come out and talk about a poor, starving child whose parents died from some epidemic or genocide and that we should look into our hearts to donate.

I don't believe in censorship, sort of the reason I swear in public. :p That's a silly example, but there are many problems we need to approach and a dose of IN-YOUR-FACE footage might be what people need to change. Even though it makes us uncomfortable to stare at a starving girl, it can change people's minds.
