Axe advising guys to 'scrub away the skank'
What's this, an Axe advertisement that's been deemed offensive to women? Shocking! The latest complaint comes from Ms. magazine, which takes exception to Axe's advice that guys can "scrub away the skank" with Axe's Snake Peel pumpkin-orange body wash after a random overnight encounter. The ad in question sends readers to TheFixers.com, a faux advice show for men that also did not impress the Ms. writer. "Thanks, Axe," she writes. "You sure know how to make a girl feel special." See the full ad after the jump. Via Adland.
