    Match.com Just Got Schooled Over This Offensive Freckles Ad

    Consider this one massive missed connection.

    Match.com is catching fire on Twitter this week for an ad that’s quite offensive to the freckle-faced populous.

    The ad, which was posted in London tube stations, features an up-close photo of a model with freckles and red hair. The caption reads, “If you don’t like your imperfections, someone else will,” followed by an offer for a free three-day trial.

    Hi @Match. Think you need to rethink your latest campaign. There's nothing wrong with freckles. #match.com

    Understandably, passersby were NOT amused at calling freckles and red hair “imperfections.” The U.K.’s Advertising Standards Authority received “half a dozen” complaints about the ad, The Guardian reports.

    Think you need to rethink your latest campaign,” Twitter user Max KC told Match. “There’s nothing wrong with freckles.”


    A Match.com spokeswoman told The Huffington Post that the “Love Your Imperfections” campaign was meant to “[celebrate] perceived physical and behavioral imperfections” and “encourage everyone to be proud of their individuality.”

    But freckles and red hair are not “imperfections.”

    In fact, style photographers often celebrate freckles as marvelously unique facial features that make for a stunning statement. While some people have had a hard time learning to love their own, freckles are nonetheless to be appreciated, admired and loved, just like every other inch of our bodies.

    Match is “in discussions with our relevant partners about removing these posters as soon as possible,” the spokeswoman said.

    Meanwhile, we’ll be swiping left on Tinder.

    JFC! That's the exact fucking point of the entire ad campaign, you daft fucking moron! You might be self conscious about your freckles, but you shouldn't be, because there's always someone else out there who will find them attractive and charming. Basic common sense is just a bridge too far for these perpetually butthurt fucking idiots.


    Honest to God, how does this current generation manage to wipe their own asses? I'm surprised they haven't decided that doing so is humiliating and degrading.

    You're cool, though. It's the other ones I was referencing. I have a red-headed friend so it's OK for me to say it.

    This generation just doesn't know how good they have it.

    I was viewing some images from WWI memorials. The shit soldiers went through fighting in the trenches and being bombarded by ordinances is incredible. If you have a few minutes, view the below images at the link. Very intresting:

    Back in the day people who were offended by every little thing and constantly got their panties in a bunch over true bullshit were called faggots.

    People lost their lives fighting mustard gas and then later fucking Nazis, but todays group of utter pieces of shit think their WW2 is the fight to end hurt feelings.
