Celebrities appear bruised and battered in new ad campaign for anti-violence, such as Emma Watson, Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Miley Cyrus just to name a few.
According to Cosmopolitian.com, this anti-domestic violence campaign is drawing attention for its use of heavily Photoshopped images of female celebrities depicting them as victims of violent abuse.
The artist, AleXsandra Palombo, also an activist, created these doctored images to promote anti-violence.
The campaign was launched on Facebook by the artist entitling it, “Life Can Be A Fairytale If You Break The Silence.”
These are the images which are hard to look at, at first, until you realize that none of these are true images, but really photoshopped.
TMZ reports that while both Kendall and Kim support the cause, their consent was never asked for in this campaign. It is not known yet if the images will continue to be apart of the advertisement.
What does one think about these images?
Though they sure do send an appropriate message, I don’t know if using celebrities was the best idea, especially the Kardashian clan. The girls are not known for their charitable work in this area. Whereas celebrities like Emma Watson, Angelina Jolie, and Miley Cryus have, therefore I understand the usage of these photos.
Though there is something about them that make me feel uncomfortable because the falseness to them. These women aren’t getting beat up in real life, as far as we know. And, if someone who has been sees this, I don’t think they would be so gung-ho about it all.
I just don’t know if this was appropriate. A great message, but a different approach maybe needed.
