Here are two posters designed for use on the London Underground.
I’m proud to unveil Nubian Skin as the winner of this year’s TfL Diversity in Advertising Competition. Look out for their empowering, inclusive adverts on the @TfL network. pic.twitter.com/uUjvSG7t5d

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan banned one of them in 2016, claiming ‘I am extremely concerned about this kind of advertising which can demean people, particularly women’; the other he has just rewarded with £500,000 worth of free advertising space as the prize for Transport for London’s annual ‘diversity in advertising’ competition.
Can anyone explain why one of these posters is so empowering it has to be displayed everywhere and the other is so demeaning it had to be banned?
Personally, I must say I’m mystified.
