A mother paints her son's toenails hot pink because it's his favorite color. Does that mean he'll become gay or transgender? That is the controversy surrounding a J. Crew ad that is swirling around the internet. This is the word from ABC News.
A photo of J. Crew's president and creative director Jenna Lyons painting the toenails of her son Beckett in an ad was sent to customers last week in the feature, "Saturday with Jenna."
Social conservatives reacted with outrage. Fox News' Dr. Keith Ablow ran an opinion piece on the issue. Some interpreted the ad as the child was being "turned" gay or transgender.
Advocacy groups are fighting back, calling the reaction to the ad "ridiculous."
