Written by: Chaitra

There are a zillion ways to get involved in controversies, and Hollywood isn't new to controversies. Sometimes, celebrities get into controversies unknowingly. We, here have Hollywood celebrities who were featured in the most controversial ad campaigns of all time.

Most of the times, it's the female celebrities who get into trouble by being a part of the controversial advertisements. The reason behind this being the high level objectification of women. But it is surprising as to how the celebrities agree to be a part of it.

One such example is the recent feature of Kylie Jenner in the 'Interview' magazine. The 18 years old teenage girl is represented as a sex doll. She's nearly bare in most of the pictures and has been depicted as a toy in the man's hands.

No doubt, the media industry, especially Hollywood is making majority of it profit through such controversial advertisements and movies. Some advertisements could get into controversies even though they have good intentions behind their themes.

PETA is one such organization that is known for the most controversial ad campaigns. And surprisingly, many of the Hollywood celebrities have been part of its ads. The "Better Naked Than Fur" featured many celebrities naked.

But, the message they were promoting through these ads was for a good cause, unlike Kylie's sex doll themed shoot with the 'Interview' magazine! So there are three kinds of ads in Hollywood. Controversial for a reason, controversial for no reason and neutral.
