‘I flash in #mycalvins’: Calvin Klein Blasted Online Over ‘Trashy And Repulsive’ Upskirt Instagram Advert

1

A Calvin Klein post on Instagram is making people flash — with anger. The clothing brand posted an upskirt photo of 22-year-old model Klara Kristen in her underwear with the caption “I flash in #mycalvins.” Comments from the account’s 4.8 million followers poured in blasting the controversial ad for being a “fodder for pedophiles” since the picture makes the model appear underage:

“DISGUSTING!!!!!!!! Promoting paedophilia. Get this REVOTING photo depicting a young child’s panties OFF!!!,” a follower wrote on the post, which garnered 1,300 comments (but 43,000 likes). Another person added: “I think this might be the most disgusting and misogynistic advert I’ve ever come across. Those in charge of this should be utterly ashamed.”

Other comments echoed the sentiment. One wrote that the ad promotes “misogyny, disrespect and patriarchal pseudo-paedophillia,” with the author adding, “this brand can do better so there’s no excuse.” Calvin Klein didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
