An online boycott campaign against Bench is starting to make rounds in Facebook that says "Bench, please bring classy back" in response to the company's underwear show-The Naked Truth held on Saturday, September 20 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Bench, one of the leading clothing brands in the Philippines, have received negative feedback about segments in the recently concluded show including the part where Coco Martin walking onstage with a model in her underwear, wearing a leash.
