The poster, seen in multiple sites across London in August, had the headline ‘DEMI LOVATO’ with ‘HOLY FVCK’ – the name of the 30-year-old star’s album written underneath it.
The poster attracted four complaints that it was likely to cause serious or widespread offence and was irresponsibly placed where children could see it.
The UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has now said the advert must not reappear.
Defending the poster, Polydor Records, a division of Universal Music, said it did not believe the poster would cause serious or widespread offence.
The label told the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) that it had checked that the poster was acceptable to run at the proposed sites prior to release, and had been assured that it was.
Polydor said the posters only appeared at six specific sites in London for a four-day period and were removed on August 23.
The ASA said it would have been clear to most of those who saw the poster that the ad alluded to the expression ‘holy f***’, and considered that it was likely to result in serious and widespread offence and had been targeted irresponsibly.
