Fuck these assholes. I love target's "thanks but go fuck yourself" response. http://m.nydailynews.com/entertainm...versy-prompt-petition-article-1.2062432#bmb=1 Target is being criticized for advertising its "Annie"-themed clothing line with white models when the movie character is played by a black actress. More than 10,000 people have signed aChange.org petition asking the company to replace ads with ones featuring girls of color. "Being African American is not ugly, it is not bad and we are sellable!" the petition says. "These grossly misleading ads are adding to the divide and does not give young African American girls aspiring to become actors anything to be optimistic about." The in-store ads feature only white girls in Annie’s signature red dress and locket, the petition says. The ads are not true to the movie’s cast and don’t promote diversity in media, it argues. The clothing line is based off the movie musical Annie, released Dec. 19, and crafted by the film’s costume designer, Renée Ehrlich Kalfus. The petition also calls on Target to apologize for being “utterly disrespectful” to the actress Quvenzhané Wallis who plays Annie. Black models are rarely featured in advertising, even though the African American community has a lot of buying power, the petition says. Signers hope Target will have more diversity in its ads. LaSean Rinique drafted the petition after she had to reassure her biracial daughter who is obsessed with Annie that she was beautiful following a trip to Target, where all the in-store ads were of white girls. "She saw the ad and said to me, 'That's not what Annie looks like. How come the new black Annie isn't good enough? Does that mean I'm not good enough?'" Rinique told Yahoo Parenting. The limited-time Annie line and ads will be out of stores by the end of the week to make way for new merchandise in the new year, Target spokesman Joshua Thomas said. Target is "proud" of its Annie for Target collection, Thomas said in a statement. Target spoke with Quvenzhané Wallis and her team about being in the campaign, but it did not work out, Thomas said. Wallis promoted the collection through an appearance at the collection launch event in November. "Girls from a variety of backgrounds were featured within the campaign, reflecting that anyone can embody the spirit and character of Annie," Thomas said.
