Look at that hussy, just walking around with her butt like that...

That is truly one of the most bizarre ads I think I have ever seen.

Hi, Elena -

The ad that you are referencing is an ad featuring fellow BlogHerAds network blogger Kristy Sammis, whose blog is called She Just Walks Around with It. Both the image and the tagline are from Kristy’s site, and are not slogans created by or for Samsung. Kristy’s blog can be found here: http://shewalks.blogspot.com/ and the review in question can be found here: http://shereviewsthings.blogspot.com/2009/10/this-dishwasher-will-save-my-marriage.html

Kristy's blog is actually about positive body image and acceptance and being comfortable in her own skin, but we recognize that the masthead does feature images that fall under some of the categories that you’ve opted out of. We sincerely apologize for any misunderstanding and we’ve gone ahead and removed this ad campaign from your site.

In future, please do not hesitate to reach out if you have concerns about any other ad creative or content. In addition to enabling bloggers to opt out of categories in general, we also allow bloggers to opt out of individual campaigns, either by emailing our help desk, through our twitter account @bloghersupport, or by calling one of our team members directly.

If you have additional concerns or questions, we’d appreciate the opportunity to address them with you. Again, our apologies that this ad was inappropriate for your blog.

Jenny Lauck
for the rest of the BlogHerAds Team
