$21.5M verdict: James Hausman Cruise Ship, Bloomingdale’s has apologized after many people took to social media to criticize a holiday catalog ad that appeared to promote date rape.
“Spike your best friend’s eggnog when they’re not looking,” reads the caption of the ad for Rebecca Minkoff merchandise, which features a female model looking away and laughing as a male model leers at her.
“Or don’t and quit being a creep… #Bloomingdales,” soap star Kristen Alderson wrote on Twitter.
“That Bloomingdales ad is horrific,” wrote another Twitter user. “How was that ever approved let alone thought of as a good idea?! Despicable.”
Others described the ad as “rapey.”
Bloomingdale’s, the luxury department store owned by Macy’s, issued an apology for the ad on Tuesday afternoon.
“In reflection of recent feedback, the copy we used in our recent catalog was inappropriate and in poor taste. Bloomingdale’s sincerely apologizes for this error in judgment,” the retailer said.
