About this time last year I called out The Christmas Date Rape Song aka Baby It’s Cold Outside.
Yesterday my daughter was in a huff because a Detroit radio station is promo-ing husband/wife duo Johnnyswim’s upcoming Christmas concert with that song.
This week the internet has called out Bloomingdale’s for a creepy lapse in judgment which appeared in their 2015 Christmas catalogue:
Bloomingdale’s swiftly issued an apology: “In reflection of recent feedback,” it said in a statement, “the copy we used in our current catalog was inappropriate and in poor taste. Bloomingdale’s sincerely apologizes for this error in judgment.”
Yay Bloomies for seeing the error of your date-rape promoting ways. Now if we could just lose the lyrics, too.
