Topless women in beer advert sparks outrage
An advertising campaign featuring three women with no tops on has been criticised for sexism ("What's wrong with bein' sexy?" - N. Tufnel, Spinal Tap):
According to Digital Spy, CEN is reporting that some groups have called for the campaign to be suspended.
One protester is quoted as saying: "There is no genuine connection between beer and naked women. The women have just been put there to sexualise beer. The advert is sexist against women."
In fairness, there probably are links to people getting pissed and taking their clothes off.
Austria's Hirter brewery spokeswoman Caroline Kroepfl impishly responded: "The poster shows three self-confident beer drinkers."
Very confident! Of course, we at Bitterwallet don't stand for this type of rampant objectification of women. DOWN WITH THIS SORT OF THING!
