Vogue magazine's Brazil edition slammed for showing able-bodied models as differently abled
Fashion magazine Vogue Brazil has been strongly criticized as being insensitive for showing able-bodied models as differently-abled on their latest cover.
The magazine photo-shopped models to look like two real Paralympic athletes from Brazil. They were edited onto the bodies of popular Brazilian actors.
Vogue Brazil says it did not do anything wrong and that they are promoting the Paralympics, which will be taking place on 7 September.
Instead, people have said that the campaign is against the idea of diversity and representation of people with disabilities.
