Are You Offended By the Victoria's Secret 'Perfect Body' Campaign?

Victoria's Secret is under fire for a new ad campaign that features the slogan "The Perfect 'Body.'"

The slogan, which refers to the retailer's "Body" lingerie line, appears with images of Victoria's Secret angels on the company's website and in stores in the UK.

The ads have prompted a widespread backlash online and inspired the hashtag #iamperfect on Twitter.
