Women Replaced By IKEA Products: Blog Makes Fun Of Company's Saudi Arabia Airbrushing Scandal

Posted: Updated:

Swedish furniture giant IKEA had a minor PR disaster on its hands when Swedish media reported that the company had photoshopped women out of its product catalogues in repressive Saudi Arabia. The company promptly apologized for the move, saying that it did not reflect the company's values.

IKEA's mistake isn't without one positive side-effect. The blog, I(KEA) got 99 problems but a b**** ain't one! takes the company's clumsy removal of women from its Saudi catalogue photos to the next level by replacing women in pop culture, history and everyday images with IKEA products.

Some of our favourites are below and get more on Tumblr. And a hat-tip to Buzzfeed for finding this little gem.
