Bloomingdale’s is under fire after releasing their recent holiday ad. In the ad, a woman is smiling with her head turned away, while a serious-faced man stares at her from behind, with the caption that reads, “Spike your best friend’s eggnog when they’re not looking.”
The internet went up in flames over the post, accusing Bloomingdales for advocating date rape.

In case it needs saying, DO NOT SPIKE YOUR BEST FRIEND'S EGGNOG. OR ANYONE'S EGGNOG. OR ANYONE'S DRINKS. EVER. #Bloomingdales
