MAC Rodarte: blogger’s views

July 18, 2010

I’m not going to go into detail on my thoughts on this issue as I feel other bloggers have already said it all and I wholeheartedly agree with them. Please take the time to look at Mizz Worthy’s blog post (link below) to find out more about the situation in Juarez and the ill-thought out collection from MAC has been ‘inspired’ by it.

At the bottom of her post there are links both to sites for more information on the situation and to other bloggers expressing their views.

    Hi sweetie, thank you for your support on this. Would you believe 29 bloggers and now 30 with you, have wished to react against this collection. here’s my attempt at summarising them all. List contains actual links to the posts themselves, not just their blog address.
    thank you :)

    Wow – thanks so much for this post – I want to make it clear I’m not telling people to boycott mac or never purchase from there again – however I do feel very strongly that they couldhave handled this in a much better way, and I’m happy if I can raise a little smidge of awareness!

    Could MAC sales possibly be lagging and if so in an attempt to cause a stir they have come up with this contraversial campaign?? For a company who has put so much wealth and concern into the plight of AIDS, their excellent recycleing program and other charities they may be involved in why this? Why now? After looking online at this campaign I see it nothing more than shock value that hopfully will do one of two things. Cause MAC to scrap it, though doubtful. Companies rarely if ever pull products due to cost. Second, as shameful as this is this campaign could bring the horrors of what is happening to these women to the world’s attention. Again doubtful. If the Mexican government cannot get a handle on the drug wars plagueing that country why should they care about scores of murdered women. Seems everyone is on the take in Mexico and sadly, MAC will profit from the violence as well. MAC has just lost this customer.

    It has crossed my mind that they do in fact know exactly what they are doing and have stirred up the controversy deliberately. Either way, the use of a situation such as Juarez for either something as frivolous as a make-up range or generally for profit is pretty shameful.

    I’m surprised about MAC especially with the things they do for aids I guess human rights is joke to them. I’m so sickened by it that I will not be buying MAC or makeup from their parent company Estee Lauder.

    Jeez, what next concentration camp victims, twin towers campaigns? They should of had money donated to the cause before trying to capatalize onο»Ώ the victims of Juarez.
