Is anyone else peeved by Shelter's current TV advert that makes a headline grabbing statement that "a member of the NHS has been threatened with eviction because their landlord fears they (the NHS worker) will catch Coronavirus.

I think it is deeply inappropriate that Shelter have used (what they have confirmed is) a unique phone call as a "headline grabber" in their TV advert as it perpetuates the myth that that ALL PRS landlords are evil, money-grabbing Rachmanís only in it for the money.

I'd be interested to know if anyone else agrees with me, or if I am being pedantic! I have complained to the Advertising Standards Authority.
