Terrible Ads: Banana Republic Wants You To Marry Your Dad?

As if Banana Republic's fast fashion, disposable clothing model weren't bad enough...now they just put out a Twitter ad featuring a couple who look like they should actually be a daughter and father. 
Seriously, what is wrong with the people who OK'd this ad? Promoting environmental destruction is one thing but this ad creates an evil new twist. It is basically unforgivable in a moment when we are finally exposing older men for taking advantage of young women, systemically use their age and power to subjugate them. It's also very tacky in a timing in light of the fact that models are exposing the fashion industry for abusing them. You should know better, Banana Republic. Pull this ad. Pull it now.
