Calvin Klein recently released a new ad campaign “I _______ In #MyCalvins” and the internet is up in arms! The image appears on the company’s Instagram account featuring 22-year-old Danish model, Klara Kristin.

Everyone on the internet is calling the campaign “repulsive” or “Fashion Porn” and encourage pedophile behaviors.

But not everyone thinks the new campaign is “that bad”:

“A peek up actress Klara Kristin’s skirt to glimpse her CK panties is not kiddie porn,” Editor-at-large of Paper Magazine, Peter Davis, told the NY Daily News. “It’s sexy and sex sells. And Klara isn’t 15.”

Some have even gone as far to say that the ad is “progressive”.

The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) has filed a petition to that asks CK to “Stop Normalizing and Glamorizing Sexual Harassment.”

The petition reads:

“By normalizing and glamorizing this sexual harassment, Calvin Klein is sending a message that the experiences of real-life victims don’t matter, and that it is okay for men to treat the woman standing next to them on the metro as available pornography whenever they so choose.

The NCOSE is demanding that Calvin Klein remove the offensive photo, suspend the Erotica ad campaign it is a part of, and “issue an apology to victims of sexual harassment or assault everywhere.”

CK is sticking by their guns on the campaign. What do you think, did this ad go too far?
