Hanes officials apologized for their contentious “faggot” ad. Rather than taking it like “men,” however, they pinned it on their advertising agents: “The ads were developed by advertising agency McCann Erickson for their own purposes and did not receive authorized approval from Hanes brands. We regret this episode and are taking steps to assure that such an event never occurs again. We apologize to all those offended by the ads. We, too, were offended.” [Towleroad]
