In response to show their support for the gown worn by actress Charlize Theron, millions of Americans across the country have risen up this week in response to heavy criticism leveled against her during a recent Hollywood charity event. This is according to a source which indicates that the garment was publicly ridiculed.
This comes barely as any news since people from different corners of the country have come in defense of vicious critiques from fashion blogs, celebrity magazines, and entertainment pundits consisting of sleeveless knee-length dress being condemned by growing grassroots members.
Cincinnati resident, Margret Feinberg, said that what people are saying about the gown is just plain wrong and some comments uncalled for. She was referring to remarks from professional critics about the looks of Ms. Theron.
There is a widespread boycott against the entertainment news program Access Hollywood and Entertainment Tonight due to the embattled garment’s detractors which are being regarded as “fashion flop”. Additionally, TMZ and PerezHilton.com have received emphatic calls to empty their inflammatory comments and offer formal apologies to the gown.
Reuter polls indicate that the vast majority of Americans are strongly backing the green colorblock dress with black leather detailing, with 72% of respondents indicating that the media treated the gown unfairly, and 80% expressing outrage in particular over a recent post on StarStyle.com which described the article of clothing as something, “straight off the mark nightmare rack”.
There are reports that many of the publications that criticized the evening dress have felt repercussions arising from popular backlash, with several websites and magazines losing millions of dollars in advertisement contracts from sponsors who no longer want to be associated with such sartorial remarks. US Weekly which described the dress as “just plain blah” wasn’t spared either after it placed the article of clothing in a “Worst Dressed” photo collage. Its longtime ad buyer Kraft Foods severed its relationship with the publication earlier this week with a statement saying that, “it is proud to stand alongside the gown.”
Nevertheless, supporters of the maligned dress said they won’t relent until the gown’s good standing is restored, despite of their achievement so far.
Jenna Davies, Bismarck, ND resident, said people need to realize that they can’t mock a nice, respectable piece of clothing and get away with it. She warned that the Hollywood commentators should rethink before taking on a dress as lovely as that again.
