Cavalli Ad Featuring May Jagger With H-Like Symbol Upsets Sufi Muslims
Al Arabiya ^ | Monday, 30 June 2014

Posted on 07/01/2014 11:34:30 AM PDT by nickcarraway

Roberto Cavalli ad featuring British model Georgia May Jagger with an H-like symbol on her neck has caused uproar among Sufi Muslims who say the ad “degrades” one of its religious symbols, The Independent reported on Monday.

The ad, which promotes the designer's fragrance, showed the model posing in her underwear with the H-like emblem, similar to the one used by Sufi Muslims to refer to God, on her wrist and neck.

Many protesters gathered in front of London’s department store Harrods in response to the ad, according to the report.

Other protests took place in Chicago as part of a global campaign to have the symbol removed from the Italian fashion label’s campaigns.

Demonstrations also took place in California, Texas and Germany and a UK petition has been signed by over 3,000 people. Cavalli, which has used the image in campaigns since 2011, says the symbols are not the same.

A spokesman for the fashion house said they are “deeply saddened by the distress expressed by’ the Sufi community but that they hope the EU ruling will ‘convince the Sufist religion of the complete good faith and the groundlessness of their requests," according to The Independent.

Jagger is the youngest daughter of Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger and model Jerry Hall.

The fashion figure has modeled for brands including Chanel, Versace and Vivienne Westwood and appeared in the London Olympics Opening Ceremony as one of the representatives of British fashion.

I thought that was the logo for Under Armour? Who knew it would be offensive to Muslims (stock in Under Armour destined to soar.....).

Everything upsets these people. Why don’t they stay in their own countries where nothing we do will upset them?

These a-holes just oughta come clean and tell the world that breathing by infidels is offensive to them and that if we were really caring and tolerant of their “religion” we should all just kill ourselves.

I wonder how many of the weenies walking around in Britain, the US, or Western Europe would actually indulge them?

It figures that a daughter of Mick Jagger would become a model rather than a brain surgeon.

Isn’t that the shape of some Star Wars spaceship? What’s it’s relevance to the perfume ad campaign? It must have one, because the advertiser had it added to Miss Jagger’s wrist in one picture, her neck in another.

Could diaperheads crap their pants more often for lamer reasons?

Maybe if the UK didnt import millions of mozzies, then pay them welfare to sit around all day bitching, they might break their 1,400-year rut of being useless mass-murderers and learn a skill.

I am in the process of making some modern art, a wooden H in a bowl of pee.

You’ll can say you knew me before I became a famous artist.

But models serve a great purpose. Where would we be if models didn’t show us how to wear clothes? By God, people would be wearing underwear on their head and shirts as pants completely confused.

Sufis are actually not that easy to offend. Most of them are actually quite civilized.

No pictures of the emblem. Had to google it. It looks like a double headed axe.

I get that, but I fear that in this instance it would make me feel like I was puckering up with Mick.

I tell you what’s outrageous... the fact that Labour outlawed dentistry in the UK a century ago.

Had to look it up to confirm, but with a mouth like that I figure she was Mick’s kid.

What’s the old Rodney Dangerfield line “Last time I saw a mouth like that it had a hook in it”

That reminded me of a quote from “Zoolander”.

(Z: ) Did you ever think that maybe there’s more to life than being really, really... really... ridiculously good looking? I mean... maybe we should be doing something more meaningful with our lives. Like helping people...
(B: ) Uh, Derek, what people?
(Z: ) I don’t know, people who need help!
(R: ) Models help people! They make them feel good about themselves
(M: ) They also show them how to dress cool and how to wear their hair in interesting ways
(Z: ) I guess so...

Disappointing but not surprising. It appears that the only civilized ones left belong to the sect that the rest have always regarded as apostates (Baha’i).

You can't really blame the Muzzies. It's only natural to ask.

I blame those who cave to their demands. They're the ones who encourage Muzzies to keep asking for more.

I think it’s psychological saturation. When your *first* thought is “Star Wars,” it’s clearly a serious condition.

There are a couple of guys I know that went absolutely wild for women with a front tooth gap like that. I never understood it myself, but to each their own I suppose.
