Christina Applegate Slams Candace Owens’ ‘Horrifying’ and ‘F—king Gross’ Remarks on Skims’ Wheelchair-Inclusive Ad

Christina Applegate has recently spoken out against Candace Owens’ controversial comments on a recent ad campaign by Skims, Kim Kardashian’s shapewear line. The campaign featured models in wheelchairs wearing the Adaptive Fits Everybody Scoop Bralette, a bra equipped with a hook and eye closure in the front for easier accessibility while dressing.

Owens, a conservative commentator and podcaster, criticized the campaign in a February 28 episode of her show, calling the photos “ridiculous” and questioning the extent of inclusivity in society. Owens asked for someone to “educate” her if she was wrong.

Applegate, a well-known actress and disability advocate, was quick to respond to Owens’ remarks. In a tweet, Applegate called Owens’ comments “horrifying” and “f—king gross,” and urged her to “educate herself” on the importance of inclusivity.

Applegate’s response highlights the importance of representation and inclusivity in advertising and media. People with disabilities are often left out of mainstream marketing and are not given the same opportunities as their able-bodied counterparts. This is not only unfair but also perpetuates harmful stereotypes and stigmatization of those with disabilities.

The Skims campaign is a step towards greater inclusivity and representation, and Owens’ criticism only serves to perpetuate exclusion and discrimination. Disability rights and advocacy groups have praised the campaign for its efforts to include and empower those with disabilities.

It is crucial for society to continue to promote and celebrate diversity in all forms, including disability. By doing so, we can create a more inclusive and equitable world for everyone.
