Contemporary Artist Photoshops Celebs for New Domestic Violence Campaign

Kendall Jenner appears in domestic violence campaign

Contemporary artist Alexsandro Palombo has released an extremely confronting anti-domestic violence campaign which will probably leave you speechless. The creative has photoshopped eight high-profile celebrities, including Kim Kardashian West, Kendall Jenner, Emma Watson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, Angelina Jolie, Kristen Stewart and Miley Cyrus, to appear bloody and beaten under a banner reading, “Life can be a fairytale, if you break the silence.” 

The Italian artist and activist strategically chose celebrities who maintain a high profile in today’s society as it shows that domestic violence can indeed affect anyone, no matter how shiny and perfect your life may appear on the outside.

The series did not require the celebrities’ consent but has the potential to strike a chord with Kimmy K, who claims to have suffered domestic abuse during her first marriage to producer Damon Thomas. The reality TV star reportedly accused him of punching her in the face on one occasion, which he denied, however, it could be problematic that she appears in the campaign with a black eye.

Self-professed feminist figure Caitlin Stasey took to Instagram today to slam Kylie Jenner’s recent editorial for Interview, throwing serious shade at the reality star for partaking in yet another questionable and controversial shoot.

“Can we please stop validating the whims of a talentless appropriator?” Caitlin wrote, drawing attention to both Kylie’s blacklight shoot earlier this year as well as the recent wheelchair shot. “Be famous.

Fashion Industry Hits Back At Fat-Shaming ‘Organisation’ By Spreading the Love Instead

The British Transport Police are currently investigating an “organisation” which hands out fat-shaming cards on the London Tube, but, in the meantime, members of the fashion industry are working together to derail the “Overweight Haters Ltd” mission of making people feel crappy about themselves, using forms of totally acceptable retaliation to spread good vibes instead.

Too busy being, ah, horrible people, Overweight Haters Ltd forgot to register their domain name online, making way for plus-size label Navabi to swoop in and let everyone in on its own little agenda.

The clothing brand has been handing out cards which instead read “You Are Great” and are encouraging others to do the same with artwork provided on the website. “Hopefully we made a few people feel good, rather than making people feel bad,” the website read. (more…)

“We as women can speak to our strength and our good humor, our achievements and the fact that we come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and different colors, and we can speak to all of this in the sometimes receptive corners of the world and synthetic outlets,” Cate said. (more…)
