Channel 4 'Bigger. Fatter. Gyspier' ad faces flak online
Channel 4 has faced flak online for its billboard ad, promoting the new season of Big Fat Gypsy wedding.
The ad read 'Bigger. Fatter. Gyspier' and had a picture of two children, one in the foreground and another in the background.
In response to a Twitter comment about the ad, Channel 4 said ‘Everyone featured in the posters has seen them and is happy with them. Parental consent was given for the poster campaign’.
A blog post by Ross McCulloch on the ad led to multiple responses, with several people saying they plan to contact the ASA about the ad.
