Italy's Publicity Control Unit (IAP) has banned the controversial "No Anorexia" campaign, ordering billboards to removed. Well, actually there's only one billboard that still remains in Rome since the campaign is pretty much over at this point.
"The photo is shocking for everyone, particularly those who are sick, and has been set up for commercial ends," IAP President Giorgio Floridia told AFP news agency. We would add this correction: the campaign was shocking for everyone. When they first saw it. A month ago. "Banning" it now just gives the campaign another wave of publicity. [BBC News]
