The anticipated book-to-movie adaptation hits theaters on Valentine’s, but not everyone’s enamoured!
The National Center on Sexual Exploitation just launched the #50DollarsNot50Shades campaign, urging people to donate to battered women’s shelters rather than to a film that “glorifies the abuse of women.”
According to them, real women “don’t end up like Anastasia; they often end up in a women’s shelter, on the run for years or dead.”
“The money you would have spent on movie tickets and a baby-sitter or movie tickets, popcorn and drinks will go towards serving victims of abusive relationships like the one glamorized in the 50 Shades series,” the group’s Facebook page adds in a post.
Does anyone approve of this?
