10 Mannequins Who Are Done With Clothes

Here is the protest you didn’t read about in today’s news. A group of naked mannequins gathered today in New York’s Meatpacking District to stand up against the use of mystery fabrics. So far it appears to be a peaceful assembly, with plans to extend into the weekend.

“I did not bring my family to this country so that my children could grow up wearing this garbage. This is not our American dream.”

2. Kevin Collin, 26

“I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Those mystery fabric corporations…they don’t care about us. Give me cotton or give me death!”

3. Shelly Warren, 17

“My generation doesn’t deserve this. I don’t deserve this. If I can’t wear cotton, I guess I just won’t wear anything now, will I?”

4. Liam Jarvis, 18

“Dude, I don’t even really know what is going on, but all I got to say is that this garbage they made me wear at my last job was itchy as hell. I’m done with this, man. Done with it!”

5. Moira Bailey, 25

BuzzFeed

“Listen, this is less about me and who I am and more about what we are all here supporting. Fight the injustice! Cotton or nothing!”

6. Hayden Terrell, 31

“Look, just because I’m a mannequin doesn’t mean I shouldn’t have a say in what kind of clothes I wear. This is not a minority opinion. It’s the MAJORITY.”

7. Vanessa Candi, 29

“We need to EDUCATE ourselves by reading labels. Don’t be duped by looks, people! Knowledge is power.”

8. Jed Claud, 35

BuzzFeed

“I’ve worked storefronts in SoHo, 5th Avenue, Paris, and Milan, and I’ve been working in the industry for 15 years. I know what quality is, and it’s not these mystery fabrics.”

9. Tiffany Mable, 16

BuzzFeed

“EVERY PERSON, MANNEQUIN, AND ANIMAL DESERVES TO HAVE THE TOUCH OF SOFT COTTON ON THEIR SKIN! “

10. Lori Ariana, 22

“I’m trying to make a statement here. Our naked mannequin bodies represent how we’re fed up with the quality of mystery fabrics. LET’S RAISE AWARENESS GUYS!”
