Hugh Fitzgerald: Mind The Gap, Or Signs of Sanity in France

An advertisement this past summer for the clothing brand Gap shocked many in France.

The latest Gap ad campaign, “Back to school” features a little girl in a hijab, CNEWS France reports.

On 24 July, Gap Kids launched the “Back to school” ad campaign and on 31 July, the brand tweeted an ad which features a little girl in an Islamic veil.

This latest ad campaign wasn’t well received in France, a boycott was even launched. “I’ll never accept to see little girls in veils. I will never go to Gap”, tweeted Anne-Christine Lang, deputy of Onward.

A petition against the ad called “The veil is not child’s play” was also started on Change.org

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
