Did you notice in The Bywater advertisement on page 51 [April 9, Xpress] that the child looks terrified? I was appalled to see the picture of a very young child grabbed by a giant rabbit with sharp teeth.
This is wrong on so many levels. Are you aware that April is National Child Abuse Protection Month? I would like to see greater editorial awareness and sensitivity.
Editor’s response: Paid ads are largely the province of our advertisers. We don’t allow certain types of ads and certain content, such as nudity or vulgar language — but to a large degree our advertisers are responsible for their ads. In addition, in the case of this particular ad, the intent appears to have been humor rather than to be scary.
