‘Whiplash’ Madonna Ad Cleared

A telly ad starring pop queen Madonna has been cleared of pandering to paedophiles.

The advert for H&M shops shows the star wielding a riding crop in front of a woman who is stripped by two men and put into trendier clothes.

Viewers complained it encouraged child-sex perverts and violence.

But the watchdog Advertising Standards Authority dismissed the claims.

It agreed some people found the ad offensive.

But it said the actress in the commercial was 24 and did not dress like a schoolgirl.

And they ruled Madonna’s whip would be seen as a symbol of her artistic style, not a threat of physical punishment.

The advert is banned from being screened during children’s TV programmes.
