DISTASTEFUL MRT ADVERT SHAMES CHILDREN FOR NOT BEING PRETTY ENOUGH

My friend shared a really disturbing advertisement today on snapchat, the slogan says ” i gave up being an actress because i don’t think i’m pretty” this is pretty disturbing to me. The smaller font below says “dream again! Join us! ” to top it up, the image they used is a really sad child. Every year, more and more children face body image dissatisfaction, feeling insecure and unhappy about themselves?

Something that is partly influfenced by how social media potrays beauty. Is this the right message at all to encourage how our younger generations view themselves?

I dont understand what is this advertisement leading to convey but indeed it does not show any body image positivity to me at all.
