Nike praised for ad featuring woman with underarm hair
The photo, captioned ‘Big mood’, has been liked over 180,000 times, earning praise from many for proudly displaying a natural body, albeit while weathering some flak from those less receptive to armpit hair.
One user wrote ‘Nike thank you for doing this, #Bodyhairpositivity is something that needs to be normalised.”
Others were less complimentary, however, with some branding the image as ‘disgusting’, a response which drew a further wave of support in favour of the model.
Nike has made a habit of courting controversy by pushing the boundaries of what mainstream audiences find acceptable, recruiting anti-racism campaigner Colin Kaepernick to narrate and star in its ‘Dream Crazy’ film.
