(HOLLYWOODREPORTER) — A Delaware mom is taking issue with Target's new ads for its Annie-inspired clothing line.
According to Yahoo! Parenting, L'Sean Rinique Shelton was faced with some difficult questions after her 8-year-old biracial daughter saw an ad featuring a young white model wearing Annie's signature red dress. "She saw the ad and said to me, 'That's not what Annie looks like. How come the new black Annie isn't good enough? Does that mean I'm not good enough?'" Shelton told Yahoo! Parenting.
Although Shelton was able to quell her daughter's uncertainties, she began to question Target's seemingly singular portrayal of Annie and decided to write a petition Dec. 29 demanding a removal of the in-store ads and an apology to the film's star, Quvenzhane Wallis.
