A reader has written in to The Straits Times (ST) Forum pages questioning the fuss over Abercrombie & Fitch's giant advertisement.

Singapore's regulatory watchdog, the Advertising Standards Authority of Singapore (ASAS), had seen fit to classify the ad as indecent.

The short two-paragraph letter, published today, pointed instead to a poster promoting a local waxing and beauty firm.

Mr Anand A. Vathiyar asked of the regulatory body: "Would ASAS care to assess a truly obscene poster advertising a local firm specialising in beauty and waxing?

He said the "vulgar visual of the poster", commissioned by the company Strip: Ministry of Waxing, is plastered in malls, on lamp posts and as street buntings.

He added: "One cannot fail to see it at The Cathay building and on lamp posts around Great World City, to name two of the places."
