You Stay Classy, Dakota Fanning (& Mom): Kid in Obama Friend’s Perverted Ad

By Debbie Schlussel

Where the heck is 17-year-old actress Dakota Fanning’s mother?  Probably laughing all the way to the bank. Apparently, she’s more concerned with raking it in off her meal ticket daughter than using even a modicum of parental discretion.  Or generating publicity for her daughter’s lackluster, flagging acting career.  That’s clearly the case with Fanning’s latest “venture”:  modeling the sexually suggestive and provocative photo, below, for Marc Jacobs’ “Oh, Lola!” perfume.  You don’t need to be a prude to find this tasteless. In case you forgot, Lola is short for “Lolita”–you know, the Vladimir Nabokov novel about a middle-aged man who has sex with a 12-year-old.  Oh, and the flower thing–yup, being de-flowered.  Get it?  None of this is happenstance or coincidence.  It’s carefully orchestrated.  As you may know, Jacobs is a huge Barack Obama supporter and friend (who frequently wears skirts). Michelle Obama regularly wears his designer clothes.  (Below is a photo of Jacobs and his boyfriend.)  Hey, maybe the Obama girls should see the ad below and get some of their own “Oh, Lola!” . . . and some “Lolita experiences.”

Dakota Fanning Ad for Marc Jacobs (in Skirt)

Fanning was cute (but talentless) as a kid.  Unfortunately, despite the fact that she grew up and is no longer cute (but still talentless), Hollywood casting agents and directors still give this plain Jane acting jobs.  And, apparently, it’s gone to her and her stage mother’s heads.  No big deal that a perfume bottle is suggestively placed in her crotch like some sort of giant penis or vibrator, right?  After all, this is the age of Oprah and her sexperts telling moms to buy their ten-year-old daughters sex toys and vibrators.  So, anything goes.  No problem with sexualizing young girls (and though Fanning is 17, she is clearly made to look younger in this ad). This is the kind of stuff the Muslim world uses as propaganda about how decadent the West is (all while those same Muslims rape 12-year-olds).

By the way, the Fanning ad has been banned by the United Kingdom’s Ad Standards Authority.  Since we have the First Amendment, the Fanning crotch vibrator ad is perfectly “acceptable,” here. But just because we have the First Amendment and protected speech, doesn’t mean this is the way to exercise it.

Maybe the problem with America is that we are way too concerned with unsubstantiated allegations against Herman Cain  . . . and not concerned at all that this idol to young girls poses like this in sexualized ads targeted at them.

You stay classy, Fanning Family.

People are going to see her with a perfume bottle on her lap, and freak out! Who cares if she’s sitting down with a perfume bottle on her? Who cares if that guy supports Obama or wears a skirt/kilt? Who cares if some teen masturbates?

AhYes on November 10, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    Who cares? A country that isn’t offended by the buggery of boys and the perversion of its commerce is not a country that is going to stand up to our enemies abroad.

    The other day Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton said in a speech we shouldn’t worry about what Islamic parties are doing in the Middle East. She’s a moron.

    And I am going on the record as saying I do care – and am concerned for the future of our country and where its heading.

    NormanF on November 10, 2011 at 6:01 pm

I thought she was good in I Am Sam and Uptown Girls

Matthew on November 10, 2011 at 5:25 pm

If she were my daughter,I wouldn’t allow her to do that ad.

Ghostwriter on November 10, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    I would never allow a daughter of mine to do something inappropriate. Sadly, the lack of traditional male role models in our society affects the development of young women as much as of young men. Women are good with affection, love and compassion. They are lousy at setting the rules and giving young people a sense of purpose and direction. And if our male models are like Marc Jacobs, all I have to say is G-d help our country!

You have a talent – anything you publish has something to do with Obama. You must feel really sorry for waking up in the morning only to see that Obama is still a president….
Ok, lets discuss your “favorite” conservative douches:
Palin – brain damaged idiot 1/2 term gorvernor of Alaska (classy candidate for president)
Bachman – Palin’s lost sister (it is apparent – they share same 1/2 of the brain)
Perry – openly associtates with terrorist organization formed to push Texas to be independent of the USA
Cain – sex offender.
Romney – flip-flopper
Paul – Freddie Kruger’s lost cousin (distant relative of Palin – gets a piece of the collective brain she shares with Bachman)

If you comfortable in associating everything bad in this world with Obama – I am compelled to point out mental retardation among GOP contenders.

johnny c on November 10, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    Dear Mr. C.: Have you read ANY of Ms. Schlussel’s postings on Sarah Palin? Or Michelle Malkin? Or Pamela Geller?

johnny c on November 10, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    The GOP field doesn’t excite any one, correct.

    And they all have their drawbacks.

    But if Dakota Fanning is a sign of what Obama’s America has in store for the future, even a flawed conservative is still preferable to the guy in the White House who wants to preside over an America in decline.

    Beginning of course with the culture. A lot of people are resigned to it. I am not one of them and neither is the webmaster of this site.

    NormanF on November 10, 2011 at 5:56 pm

    What does the “c” in Johnny c stand for, cretin?

    If you ever read Debbie’s column, she is no fan of most of the Republicans you listed, including Sarah Palin. As for your crack about Cain, there is no evidence that he is a sex offender, or even a harasser. Only a moron like yourself would believe the story of him grabbing that woman’s crotch…she would have run to the police or her lawyer’s office so fast. That same woman is friends is with David Axelrod and has numerous Democratic connections.

    Getting back to the central point, if you have nothing of value to say Mr. Cretin, just STFU.

    Jonathan E. Grant on November 10, 2011 at 6:01 pm

      Jon, Debbie is still no fan of most of them but she has come to realize that everything is set from the top, beginning with the tone.

      The White House finds nothing wrong with an Islamic Middle East. I find that quite frightening.

      And any one apart from Obama – no matter how flawed, would be an improvement.

      We’ve got a country to save in the coming year.

      NormanF on November 10, 2011 at 6:10 pm

    What do you think of Obama’s membership in gay Chicago club “Man’s Country” and the 3 dead gay church guys in Rev. wright’s church to clean up Obama’s image. Obama got got rid of his latest Reggie Love- gone from White House today as Obama goes to Bali on Vacation.

    bobby99 on November 10, 2011 at 9:50 pm

I’d bet Marc Jacobs is NOT the man in the relationship. A guy who wears a dress has a certain self-image.

As for the ad, its tasteless. Oh I know sex sells but exploiting children in this way should be reprehensible.

While we may have freedom of speech, not all speech is created equal.

The again as Debbie pointed out, we’re more concerned with whom Herman Cain may have allegedly propositioned decades ago than with protecting the Dakota Fannings of the world and other teen girls like her in the present and future from the unbridled sexuality that is leading to more teenage Baby Mamas.

We sure do take pride in our decadence and in our values – not so much.

NormanF on November 10, 2011 at 5:43 pm

Hmmm…yes, I am shocked to see that Dakotah’s mom is acting like the middle part of the human centipede. And Dakotah is obviously a massive pile of brilliance, herself.

Occam's Tool on November 10, 2011 at 5:50 pm

    Just like the morons and slackers who make up much of this country and who mindlessly consume Marc Jacobs’ products. I can’t say its exactly news. This has been happening for quite awhile now.

    NormanF on November 10, 2011 at 6:13 pm

Sorry to point this out Debbie, but once anybody does something you disapprove of, you have this tendency to automatically call them “talentless.” It’s very unprofessional of you. The fact is, at one time Cat Stevens was a very gifted singer/songwriter and it’s tragic that in the late 70s, he decided to cross over to the dark side. To deny the fact that he had talent at one time simply wouldn’t be truthful.

This situation is similar (though obviously not nearly as serious). I don’t follow the career of Dakota Fanning (or any other actress), but I did think that she was one of the more watchable performers in Spielberg’s mostly lackluster remake of “War Of The Worlds.” She was also quite articulate as the narrator for the disturbing documentary, “In The Realms Of The Unreal.”

I also don’t read women’s fashion magazines, and thus, if that picture had not appeared on my Yahoo homepage today, I probably would’ve gone the rest of my life without seeing it. When you think about it, the only thing that’s unusual about the photograph is that she’s female. Taking a photo of one’s self holding a phallic looking object between one’s legs, and then presenting it to the public (via facebook, texting or any other modern means) is more the sort of crude sophomoric humor one would expect from an immature teenage boy…Or perhaps Anthony Wiener.

Anyhow, I would not be a bit surprised if this gets satirized on either South Park, Family Guy or Beavis & Butthead (or all three) in the near future.

Irving on November 10, 2011 at 6:33 pm

It doesn’t take any talent to be a skank. In a country in which we follow the sex lives of people who don’t have greatness, I’m extremely skeptical any one knows the meaning of true greatness. That’s the rule in a society in which standards have ceased to have a place in the hearts of men. It is perhaps the only rule we follow these days.

NormanF on November 10, 2011 at 8:07 pm

Meh. Disney has been doing this – sexualizing minor females – for going on 20 years, and they get called “family friendly.”

I think that this ad was banned in the U.K.

Gerald on November 10, 2011 at 8:35 pm

Irving, “Cat Stevens” aka Yoseph Islam has ALWAYS struggled with the dark side. The dude can’t modulate himself. He’s either a (talented) hedonist or a sicko Islamist. Because he can’t get it straight (and feel like a good human being) he goes to extremes. It’s sick and it’s sad. He can’t get it right and ALWAYS takes it too far. NOW he is fully ensconced in dark. Sucks to be him.

Let me bring up a non PC issue. These misogynistic gay males like Marc Jacobs (rich and talented but sick in his heart and soul) and Tom Ford.

These two set back the so-called women’s movement so far back to a place that heterosexual males didn’t even reach.

If you don’t believe me google image “Tom Ford Perfume Ads” and you’ll be disgusted and shocked. And I double warn you because I railed against Ford’s US Magazine Ads having NOT seen the UK and European Ads…those are even more disgustingly pornographic. And I am NOT using hyperbole.

Tom Ford even sexualizes a younger female (12, I think) in one of his magazine ads. (Although NOT in the manner of the ads I mentioned above. They are overtly pornographic.

The Left will NOT shine the spot-light on the gay-male misogyny! I want to point it out because it DISGUSTS me. And as a female who used to really, really love the company of gay men, I want to show how disgusting THEY are. But they are covered up by their cloak of homosexuality. It’s not right and being gay should NOT shelter those of Ford’s and Jacob’s ilk.

Skunky on November 10, 2011 at 9:05 pm

You know you’ve hit a nerve when you get all the troll libs posting opinions supporting disgusting pedophiliac behaviors. In support of Debbies opinion as to this girl being abused by her people, I’d like to point out the movie she made with sean penns blessing with his wife, “Hound Dog”. Absolutely horrible. Way beyond the pale of any possible decent behavior of parents. So nobody can really be surprised that they signed off on this disgusting material. Anyone else tired of people dragging conservative, or republican party members into the mud when ever a lib is rightly outed as a complete loser?

samurai on November 10, 2011 at 9:19 pm

My question is where is Dakota’s dad? Or was he disposed of awhile back?

Agree with u on nearly everything Deb, but not Hormone Cain. Everyone is lying except him. No way babe.

lookaroundu on November 10, 2011 at 9:48 pm

Lookaroundu, you should have a go at this…

Good argument. Not as good as a DS one, but it will do.

Part of our problems (re:Cain and the Pearce post) is that many Conservatives UNDERESTIMATE what the Left will do to win. By any means necessary.

Not me. And I especially know I am on the right track because some famous talk hosts who SHOULD know better are going down the Potemkin Path and NOT using their gut. Sad to see, but I am staying and FIGHTING for good! Damn straight!

Skunky on November 10, 2011 at 10:22 pm

“As you may know, Jacobs is a huge Barack Obama supporter and friend (who frequently wears skirts).”

One other thing I’d like to point out. When you say “As you may know,” in this case you’re talking to women and gay men. Like John Galliano before his “incident,” I had never heard of this Marc Jacobs character until reading about him here. I suspect that is the case with most, if not all heterosexual males.

Irving on November 10, 2011 at 11:57 pm

I googled Marc Jacobs and apparently he’s Jewish (from a non observant family). Ok.
Then I see that he has retail stores . Fine.

Nary a store in Israel but :

Beirut, Lebanon
Doha, Qatar
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

annelid on November 11, 2011 at 12:03 am

    Its funny but Jacobs would be strung up in those countries for being a Jew and also for being gay. But I guess they somehow overlook his being a vile dhimmi b/c well – they’re hypocrites. I’m not surprised he doesn’t have a store in Israel.

    All you have to do with this guy is connect the dots.

    NormanF on November 13, 2011 at 11:23 am

Sorry Deb…Yeah, the ad is sleazy – but this kid is far from talentless. I spent too many years in Hollywood as an actor, acting teacher and coach, and talent scout, not to be able to recognize ability. Again – sorry, but you have to give her that. Hopefully, she’ll be mature enough to realize that she blew it, at least for the time being, with this ad. Prior to seeing this, I’d always hoped that Dakota wouldn’t get sucked into such bullshit, and might well be an example for other acting aspirants.

shegundala on November 11, 2011 at 11:28 am

The path of this article is akin to a badly painted roller coaster. Debbie Schlussel starts out by discussing an ad with Dakota Fanning then seemingly begins to compare the 6 degrees of separation to inferring that her mother is merely using her (despite the fact that these young women are on their own), then onward to infer pedophilia, advancing this very shaky alliance to cite that the designer of the perfume just happens to be a friend of the Obama’s. (Ahhh, now it’s becoming clear…this isn’t an article on a Dakota Fanning, but yet another way to slander those whose with whose policies you disagree.) …Now isn’t that adult!

Then Debbie wraps up her propaganda with a big bow consisting of yet another inference, but this time she works in derogatory comments about Muslims and how they all supposedly rape 12 year old girls.

What disgraceful nonsense! Talk about Tokyo Rose, Debbie Schlussel doesn’t care about ethics or facts…just more of the very same dirty sensationalism of which she complains so heartily.

Sarah Campbell on November 12, 2011 at 5:27 am

    Thank you Sarah Campbell. Because of dopes like you I now know to point my finger at YOU when I have to explain why American women are so skanky. You not only celebrate it, but look away when you see it going down the tubes.

    And it’s idiots like YOU that show why a 22 year old man can walk in a gym shower and see a disgusting boy-raper raping a 10 year old boy…only NOT to stop it.

    Thanks! You can’t see the forest for the trees but when the day the forest is coming down hard on YOU in a way you don’t like, I hope you can look back and see how complicit YOU were.

    DS has proof that at least she fought against it.

    Yay! Let’s hear it for Feminazis! A worthless lot.

    Skunky on November 12, 2011 at 11:47 am

    Denial of facts is one of the things a lot of Debbie’s critics resort to b/c they can’t face them. Blaming the messenger won’t make go away. The degeneracy of our culture and the evil Islam represents are right in front of us. Go join Hillary Clinton… she’s as dumb as you and when she talks about foreign policy, she doesn’t have a frickin’ clue who are our enemies and who are our friends. And when it comes to sensationalism, people who put the profits of sleazy hucksters above the well-being of their own children, they have made notoriety a point of pride. Debbie didn’t say the Dakota Fannings of the world deserve it and there’s no accounting for taste in your post. Wanting to have a healthy country shouldn’t be a partisan or ideological issue. For some though, America hasn’t declined fast enough to suit them.

    NormanF on November 13, 2011 at 11:36 am

I believe in freedom of speech, or at least I would like to say so. But that actress has wasted her talent on this porn-y POS of an advert.

Expression requires discipline. Remove that and you’ll be stuck with mayhem and disintegration.

And a society/person without discipline cannot be expected to survive any longer.


The Reverend Jacques on November 12, 2011 at 1:26 pm

This has NOTHING to do with President Obama. You are clearly obsessed. I was recently constipated and Obama is the President. Are the two correlated in your opinion?

Frank on February 24, 2012 at 2:52 pm

hi there, after reading your article I would just like to say that you seem to be very obsessed with sex and sexual ideas and are pushing your sexual repression out into the world in clearly insane ways. for example, the flowers in her lap, did you know that flowers have a very appealing scent and are used commonly in perfumes and perfume ads? Also, lola is a person’s name and your obsession with her being a “lolita”, even if she is OF LEGAL AGE, says to me that you may have had some issues when younger with older men. perhaps if you with out your sexual repression you may come to realize that this is an everyday, regular ad with a consenting adult in a sexy pose. p.s. I really like dakota as an actor.

psycholoy phd on February 24, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Who the hell is Debbie Schluesel?

Tommy McNutt on February 24, 2012 at 3:17 pm

I’ve never seen a blogger more jealous of an 18 year old girl (who is talented and beautiful and whose career is only getting brighter). How pathetic.

Ava on February 24, 2012 at 3:26 pm

You are disgusting! The fact that you look at this ad an see something sexual has a heck of a lot more to say about YOU than the ad. I wouldn’t let you in the same room as my daughters. You’re one sick puppy. She’s 17 and wearing a modest dress for her age! There is NOTHING wrong with a little modesty!
