Fashion giant Hennes and Mauritz has canceled an advertising
campaign using British supermodel Kate Moss following allegations she
took illegal drugs, the Swedish-based company said on Tuesday.
The company had previously said it would still use Moss in the campaign
after meeting her to discuss the publication of photos in the Daily
Mirror which the British tabloid said showed her snorting cocaine.
Moss has previously denied taking hard drugs. On Tuesday her spokeswoman was not immediately available for comment.
I wish to apologize on behalf of Kate. She’s so used to designer products that she didn’t think of H&M’s feelings. Next time she tries hard drugs she’ll go with a cheaper alternative, one to appeal to the masses instead of the fashionably elite crowd. When one is used to rolling up hundreds to snort one’s habit it’s hard to switch right over to dollar bills. It takes time to adjust. Crack should be more H&M’s speed. Right?[Reuters Article]
