MAC Pulls the Controversial Rodarte Collection

You may already be familiar with the controversy surrounding the MAC x Rodarte makeup collection, which was inspired by the designers' Fall 2010 show. The line's ghostly imagery and the names of products (Juarez, Factory) caused an uproar, with some people saying they made light of the series of grisly rapes and murders of maquiladora workers in Juarez.

After MAC apologized and donated all profits to help women in Juarez, there's now another update to the story. Instead of releasing the products in September and donating all the proceeds to initiatives designed to help women of Juarez as initially planned, MAC has decided simply not to ship the collection to stores in the first place. (All projected global profits will still be donated to organizations that help women in the border city.) Do you think MAC is doing the right thing by pulling the collection?
