Virgin Mobile Sued For Causing Teen Grief and Humiliation in Ad


Three months ago, we reported Virgin Mobile catching some heat for using images from Flickr in an Australian ad campaign. Today, the media is all aflutter over the story because the family of one of the people featured in the campaign is suing Virgin Mobile for causing their daughter grief and humiliation.

The person featured in the ad is a girl of 16. The headline of the ad reads, "Dump Your Pen Friend" and the copy reads, "Free Text Virgin to Virgin." You read whatever you want into that one.
