Disney has more than Miley to worry about

Disney Miley Cyrus has learned how hard it is to maintain a public image built on chastity, but Disney's share of the outrage over her “racy” Vanity Fair photos is complicated, given this Disney ad from Beijing, which Slate investigated earlier this week. Actually, the billboard, while unsettling, isn’t sexualized nearly as much as Miley’s photos (which aren’t that bad either), and China’s laws in this area greatly differ from ours anyway. (Plus, the ad was done by a Disney licensee, not Disney itself—though Disney did order it removed when made aware of it.) What Disney really needs to worry about is what happens to Miley’s wholesomeness once her albums stop selling.
