Default Italy's Benetton condemned for using rescued migrants in adverts

Italy's Benetton condemned for using rescued migrants in adverts


French charity SOS Méditerranée has lashed out at Italian clothing giant Benetton over an advertising campaign featuring a photograph of migrants being rescued at sea.

"SOS Méditerranée fully dissociates itself from this campaign which displays a picture taken while our teams were rescuing people in distress at sea on June 9," it said on Twitter on Tuesday.

The picture – published online and in newspapers, according to the NGO – showed migrants in a dinghy wearing red life vests with the logo "United Colors of Benetton" at the bottom.
