A.S.A bans “Nothing Tastes as Good as Skinny Feels” shirts for kids

We can all agree that this is wrong, can’t we?

It’s Kate Moss’s famous “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” quote, printed on a t-shirt. A t-shirt for children.  Because THAT’S a really healthy message for kids, isn’t it?

If you think it’s bad enough to be emblazoning this particular message on a shirt for little children, though, how about the onesie version? And no, we’re not referring to the ubiquitous adult onesie, here, but the ones for babies:

Luckily, the Advertising Standards Agency agreed that this kind of message isn’t suitable for childrens’ clothing and have banned adverts for it from appearing on custom shirt site Zazzle.

“Because we considered the ad could condone or encourage an unsafe practice or result in physical, mental or moral harm to children, we concluded that it was irresponsible,” said a spokesperson. We told Zazzle to ensure future ads were not irresponsible and, particularly where they were addressed to or depicted children, did not contain anything that was likely to condone or encourage an unsafe practice or to result in their physical, mental or moral harm.”

We’re just amazed that Zazzle needed to be told this…
