Clothing company United Colors of Benetton is stirring up much controversy with their new ads for the “Unhate” campaign. The ads, recently launched in Milan, display world leaders kissing each other. Uhhhhhhhhhh…..we love the “unhate” message. The kissing leaders…not so much. The Vatican has already denounced the picture of Pope Benedict XVI kissing Ahmed al-Tayeb, Sheikh of the Al-Azzhar mosque. Needless to say, that picture has been pulled from the campaign. The purpose of these attention-getting photos is to promote a culture of tolerance and love. One thing is for sure….they’ve got our ATTENTION!
