Pretzel thins got it wrong

Alright someone needs to fire the marketing/ad agency for pretzel thins. I am definitely on a soapbox right now, but as someone who has suffered from an eating disorder, this ad is all bad. I recently saw it on a billboard while on the bus and it forced me to think twice. No matter the situation, “Are you thin enough?” conjures up an unpleasant connotation. Check it our for yourself and let me know your thoughts.
