Vice pulls offensive suicide spread

Vice caused an immediate uproar in their all-female fiction issue with “Last Words,” a fashion spread depicting models in character as writers from Virginia Woolf to Sylvia Plath, reenacting their own deaths. The magazine quickly pulled the spread images from its site and emailed out the following statement: “The fashion spreads in Vice magazine are always unconventional and approached with an art editorial point-of-view rather than a typical fashion photo-editorial one. Our main goal is to create artful images, with the fashion message following, rather than leading. ‘Last Words’ was created in this tradition and focused on the demise of a set of writers whose lives we very much wish weren’t cut tragically short, especially at their own hands. We will no longer display ‘Last Words’ on our website and apologize to anyone who was hurt or offended.” (Source)
