Calvin Klein ad with pregnant man ‘not really about women and mothers’
Sky News Australia host Piers Morgan says Clothing brand Calvin Klein’s new advertisement for Mother’s Day, which celebrates diverse pregnancies, is not “really about women and mothers”.
“For Calvin Klein to put that out to say they’re supporting women and mothers, really?” he said.
“Is that what you’re doing when you’re doing that? Or are you potentially exposing the trans community to unnecessary mockery?”
Mr Morgan said he did not know how many transgender people would see the advertisement and think it is “good for the transgender cause”.
“That’s all I want companies like Calvin Klein, when they do this virtue signalling, to think about,” he said.
“Think about what you’re doing and the impact it may have because I watched what happened when that went on social media and immediately lit up with just widespread mockery.”
