Ford Apologizes for Kardashian Ads

Maybe kidnappers weren't the best demographic to target. Ford apologized for leaked images from an India-based ad campaign that depicted celebrities holding their enemies hostage, bound and gagged in the trunk of a Ford Figo. In one ad, Paris Hilton has the scantily clad Kardashian sisters in the trunk. Another features Berlusconi and three women in leather. Underneath the images is the tagline “Leave Your Worries Behind.” Ford’s ad agency said the ads were the result of “individuals acting without proper oversight.” Coming on the heels of a series of high-profile rapes in India, the images of women bound in car trunks caused public outrage.
