You would think that as it’s already 2017 and rockets that get you to any place in the world in less than 30 minutes are in the making, a bit of body hair won’t hurt anyone. Unfortunately, the least is true. Adidas decided to work together with the stunning Arvida Byström, “an artist, photographer, model and cyber sensation. Known for her photography, which questions femininity and gender standards using so-called ‘girly’ aesthetics.” One of the ways in which she does this is by not shaving her body hair and, therefore, she appeared in Adidas’ campaign with hairy legs, which some close-minded people couldn’t handle:

After Arvida posted a few campaign photos on her Instagram page and Adidas shared their campaign video on YouTube, she revealed she even received rape threats. Luckily, the model is sticking to her refusal to comply with stereotypes and said she is “sending love and try to remember that not everybody has the same experiences being a person.” Looks like Paris Jackson’s hairy legs aren’t the only ones getting attention at the moment.
