Stop Barneys and Disney From Changing Characters Into Supermodels
Petition Background (Preamble):
On November 14th, 2012, Barneys' Madison Avenue store will unleash a store display featuring Disney characters, like Minnie Mouse, as rail-thin models. Children, most of all, are greatly influenced by Disney characters.
In a study on fifth graders, 10 year old girls and boys told researchers they were dissatisfied with their own bodies after watching a music video by Britney Spears or a clip from the TV show "Friends".
Viewing these cartoon characters as emaciated models can negatively affect children and adults alike.
