OMFG

If you didn’t read this post about Diesel’s “Be Stupid” campaign over at WeAretheRealDeal today, you absolutely need to. (OK, well, I recommend it ;))

I commented plenty in the comments so no editorializing here … but you just have to read it– and visit the campaign’s website — to see why this is such an outrage.

Join us in writing e-mails/calling the contacts listed at the bottom of the post. Let’s get this ridiculous, degrading campaign PULLED!! Shame on you, Diesel!!

#FAIL.
