When you choose to endorse a company, you have to take the good with the bad.
Beyoncé is the sexy face of H&M's summer campaign, but it looks like not all is kosher with the brand.
The Swedish clothing manufacturer has been accused of exploiting workers in its overseas factories, including in Bangladesh, where a recent factory collapse killed approximately 1,127 people.
Workers in other Asian countries, like Cambodia, also report unfair conditions. Srey Nit, a Cambodian worker at an H&M factory in the country says:

David Beckham may have retired from soccer, but thankfully, we still get to see that hot bod of his.
The amazingly attractive Becks was in Paris yesterday promoting his H&M bodywear line wearing a red shirt, jeans, and bright orange-red sneaks.

The good news is that if he keeps promoting his H&M line, maybe we get to see more of him and his golden balls in tight manties. Fingers crossed!

A tipster sent in a photo (above) of the censorship in action and said:

Well, this is a bit of good news after that whole Abercrombie & Fitch debacle!
Diana Di Poce, a fashion communications student at Ryerson University in Canada, has launched Dare magazine, an online publication catering to women size 12 and up.
As is often the case, the 21-year-old was inspired to make the magazine when she noticed a dearth of publications that featured plus-sized women in their pages.

And so do we!
H&M made a bold, yet understated move, by using a normal-sized model to show off their new beachwear line.
Model Jennie Runk, a size 12 if you need to know, has been plastered all over H&M's website to model their new swimwear and the pics are AH-Mazing!

Abercrombie & Fitch doesn't stock women's clothing in XL or XXL sizes because they don't want anybody who doesn't fit their particular body ideal to wear their clothing!
Robin Lewis, co-author of The New Rules of Retail blames Abercrombie CEO Mike Jeffries' personal attitude toward overweight people as the reason for the lack of plus-sized clothing on the racks.
He recently said:
