It seems that Ralph Lauren is not too keen on art criticism these days and lashed out with a rather questionable DMCA takedown against this blog.

Edit: According to Extra, on Thursday, Polo Ralph Lauren released the following statement about the retouched ad:
“For over 42 years we have built a brand based on quality and integrity. After further investigation, we have learned that we are responsible for the poor imaging and retouching that resulted in a very distorted image of a woman’s body. We have addressed the problem and going forward will take every precaution to ensure that the caliber of our artwork represents our brand appropriately.”
