Here’s the announcement Change.org - who we have partnered with in our campaign against Diva - sent out to everyone who supported our petition calling on the fashion company to stop flogging porn-themed bling to little girls.

The Easter Bunny described as 'sexy' by Hugh Hefner
Collective Shout supporter Emily has alerted us to Playboy's latest product placement, kids Easter Film 'Hop.' Like many others will do on the school holidays, Emily had taken her child to see the film.

"I sincerely apologise for any offence we may have caused you, this of course was never our intention."
