Nike debuted plus-size mannequins at its London store and sparked a major debate. The brand is constantly applauded for its dedication to inclusivity and diversity, but everyone isn't impressed. Nike rolled out the plus-size mannequins to promote its latest campaign and while some feel it is a move in the right direction, others feel they are promoting obesity and unhealthy body images. Is Nike wrong or on point?

Fans of Nike's new campaign applaud the brand for including plus-size mannequins and say the campaign reflects what real women look like. The average size of an American woman is a size 16 so Nike may be on to something.

Fans say the new mannequins challenge America's body standards which have typically been in favor of a smaller frame.

London-based publication "The Telegraph" released an opinion piece by reporter Tanya Gold shamming Nike's promotion. She says the mannequins are a disservice to women and sell them a lie. Huff Post recalled Gold's piece:

“She is, in every measure, obese, and she is not readying herself for a run in her shiny Nike gear,” Gold writes. “She cannot run. She is, more likely, pre-diabetic and on her way to a hip replacement. What terrible cynicism is this on the part of Nike?”
