Being new to having a VLOG I was looking at rant's on YouTube and came across all of the below videos. If Mac hadn't pulled this collection, I too would be doing a vlog about how disgusted I am with this cosmetics line.
For all of you who don't know anything about the Mac Rodarte collection:
It's based around Mexico. Juarez in particular. Juarez is the most dangerous town in the world outside of government declared war zones. It is known for its drugs, slave labour and brutal treatment of it's women. It is a daily occurrence for women to be beaten, raped, kidnapped, dismembered and murdered. There has been 6000 murders in Juarez this year alone. The police are corrupt and do nothing to stop the violence against it's women and children.
For Mac to do a line and try and make money out of these peoples suffering just disgusts and astounds me. What is even more pathetic is that the names of their products are OBVIOUSLY named after the horrible things that happen there. Names like 'ghost' and 'factory'.
Could they be any more obvious that they know what happens and don't care? Not to mention the model looks like she's dead.
In all honesty, I'm happy that Mac have canceled the collection and are donating the amount of money they PROJECTED they would have made off this line but seriously? Damage in my eyes is done.
They have no soul. Big statement but at the end of the day - to them, it's all about the money. They wanted to make money at anyone's expense. First they offered to throw $100,000 at the problem, which (rightfully) enraged people more.
What gets to me is that most of the violence and brutality of Juarez is aimed at women and Mac sell to WOMEN. Their buyers are WOMEN.
Just because they have no conscious about what is going on, doesn't mean that we wont/don't.
If you don't mind a bit of bad language.
