Jezebel: Native people brought 'Sexy Color' to first Thanksgiving





Jezebel brings word of a tasteless Thanksgiving promotion at a chain of tanning salons. The chain has since removed the offending materials from its website and has taken down its Facebook page:
In honor of Thanksgiving, a chain of tanning salons in Alabama and Florida has launched a holiday-themed ad campaign that is both offensively stupid and stupidly offensive. "The Indians brought more than just 'CORN' to the first Thanksgiving," reads the copy, "they brought SEXY 'COLOR'!" Ugh, the unnecessary quotation marks. Ugh, the insensitivity. Ugh, the idea of indoor tanning. I feel like I'm getting brain cancer.
