    Figs, maker of scrubs, apologizes for ‘insensitive’ ad targeting osteopathic doctors

    Figs, a medical apparel company known for stylish scrubs, apologized Tuesday for a video advertisement on its website that targeted doctors of osteopathic medicine. “A lot of you guys have pointed out an insensitive video we had on our site — we are incredibly sorry for any hurt this has caused you, especially our female DOs (who are amazing!),” the company said in a statement. “FIGS is a female founded company whose only mission is to make you guys feel awesome.” As a current DO student and future physician, the disrespect for female physicians and DOs exhibited in this ad
