Clinton raps CK ads

Published on .

President Clinton added his voice to those who objected to the Calvin Klein jeans ads depicting partially clad teen-agers. At a fund-raising dinner in Denver Wednesday night, while speaking about youth and crime, the president said: "I don't have any comment on whether those Calvin Klein ads were legal or illegal. But those children were my daughter's age in those ads, and they were outrageous. It was wrong. It was wrong to manipulate those children and use them for commercial benefit." The ads were pulled earlier because of widespread criticism.
