Demi Lovato's 'HOLY FVCK' Album Posters Are Now Banned in the UK

For being offensive to Christians.

Demi Lovato‘s Holy Fvck album promo has caused some issues in the U.K. as a result of its ‘offensive’ visuals.

According to CNN, posters promoting the album have now been banned in the United Kingdom as a result of its imagery being labelled as offensive to Christians. The Advertising Standards Authority in Britain made the decision on January 11 after starting an investigation into the posters that appeared all over London. Complaints were made by four people about the posters, each of which featured the album’s provocative cover art. Some complaints also suggested that posters were “irresponsibly placed” where children could see them.

“We considered that the image of Ms Lovato bound up in a bondage-style outfit whilst lying on a mattress shaped like a crucifix, in a position with her legs bound to one side which was reminiscent of Christ on the cross, together with the reference to ‘holy fvck,’ which in that context was likely to be viewed as linking sexuality to the sacred symbol of the crucifix and the crucifixion, was likely to cause serious offence to Christians,” confirmed the ASA in a statement.

Lovato has yet to respond to the complaints.

Take a look at the cover in question below.
