Controversial Celebrity Ad Campaigns


Over the years, celebrities have come under fire for their sometimes raunchy or over-the-top ad campaigns.

Take Beyonce, for instance -- the 2010 commercial for her fragrance "Heat" was pulled from daytime TV in the U.K. for being "unsuitable to be seen by young children." And Eva Mendes' 2008 commercial for Calvin Klein's "Secret Obsession" perfume was banned altogether for being too racy.

Plus, remember when Julianne Moore's nude Bulgari billboard stirred up a bit of controversy?

Take a look at some of the most controversial celebrity ads below:

Beyonce's commercial for her fragrance "Heat" came under fire for being too racy in 2010. It was cut down to 30 seconds and had an "after 7:30 p.m." restriction in the U.K.

ABC asked that several changes be made to Madonna's 2012 perfume ad before they agreed to run the 30-second spot, including covering more of her breasts and butt. Even with said changes in place, ABC only aired the commercial after 9 p.m.

Keira Knightley
Keira Knightley starred in this controversial PSA against domestic violence in 2009 for Women's Aid.

Taylor Swift
The U.K.'s Advertising Standards Authority felt Swift's CoverGirl ad was too exaggerated (aka Photoshopped) and falsely promoted the product.

Paris Hilton
Like Kim's, Paris Hilton's 2005 Carl's Jr. commercial was considered too racy, as well. (I only remember Nancy Grace getting trolled with it)


Natalie Portman
The Advertising Standards Authority banned Natalie's ad for Dior Diorshow lash multiplying mascara on the grounds that it "misleadingly exaggerated the effects of the product."

The Joker
The Joker's Lancome ad was considered too heavily airbrushed to print by the ASA.
