"...ABC has a problem with hot ladies in their undies" or so says plus-sized lingerie carrier Lane Bryant. Apparently, back in April Lane Bryant claimed the network attempted to shut-out their plus size lingerie commercial from airing and that they "demanded excessive re-edits and rebuffed it three times before relenting to air it during the final 10 minutes of ‘American Idol,’ but only after we threatened to pull the ad buy."

What we don't get is that ABC routinely airs Victoria's Secret commercials, as well as their annual fashion show, which feature half-naked women prancing around in stilettos. In our opinion, the Lane Bryant ad is a lot more tame than the VS lingerie campaigns. This controversy has led Landline TV to create a spoof on Victoria's Secret featuring skeletons in a blond wig trying to be "sexy."
