Vancouver Whitecaps 'Sexist' Video Pulled...Because Woman Watch Soccer?
In, perhaps, the most baffling case of well, we're not quite sure, an ad for the Vancouver Whitecaps soccer team was pulled because some felt the ad was sexist. We're always up for a good controversy so we watched the 18 second ad waiting for some crazy, egregiously sexist moment.
After 18 seconds passed and the Whitecaps logo appeared, we scratched our head and thought, "Um...what?" The video is a candid capture of three women cheering on their team earlier in the season. It wasn't staged. No actors where hired. Just three women enjoying the game.
Some say the video, produced in slow motion, is reminiscent of Pamela Anderson n the opening scene of Baywatch. And that was sexist how?
