Calvin Klein’s queer-inclusive underwear campaign is now also…robot-inclusive?
In the latest promo for its #MyCalvins campaign, CK teamed up with Lil Miquela, a 19-year-old computer-generated Instagram star, and Bella Hadid, a world famous runway model, to bare it all. But wait, it gets weirder. Lil Miquela uploaded a sponsored video to her Instagram account in which she locks lips with Hadid, who identifies as straight.
“I am here,” Lil Miquela captioned the post, adding an equally cryptic, “That is my truth.”

Does this ad serve as Lil Miquela’s coming out?

Does Bella Hadid realize she’s confounded (and, honestly, queer-baited) LGBTQ women lurking in all corners of the internet?
Is anyone else absolutely unsettled by how realistic this video looks?
TBH, we have more questions than answers.
I know it's not even 9:30 a.m. but I just watched Bella make out with Lil Miquela for part of the new Calvin Klein campaign and I think I need to log off for the rest of the day. pic.twitter.com/5mTr4iEmft
