Honey Birdette Picketed By Piqued Parents Over X-Rated Adverts

Lingerie Brand, Honey Birdette’s advertising is offending people so much a bunch of parents have been spotted protesting outside its broadway store.

The protest comes after the sexy lingerie company, was slapped with its 61st breach by The Australian Association of National Advertisers. Basically, the company keeps breaching ad standards by being super sexy. 

The parents protested outside the store because its advertisements have included a women in bondage situations, half-naked women and with sexy slogans like, “Ready To Get Wet.” Not exactly for the faint of heart.

To give you a vibe, here’s one of the company’s ads that hasn’t been censored.

The parents are upset because the store is situated directly across from Lego and Smiggle. Two child-friendly stores which means children are walking past these raunchy ads.

According to The Daily Mail, a local Labor councillor Linda Scott turned up with a group of parents to protest against the store.

“Children have not given their consent, but they still suffer these violations at their local shops,” protest spokesperson Leigh Morgan told the Daily Telegraph.

“In May, State Planning Minister Anthony Roberts met with us and said he’d take action, but we have been forced to take the protection of our children into our own hands.”

This isn’t the lingerie store’s first rodeo, with the brand boasting quite the advertising rap sheet. The Advertising Standards have previously upheld plenty of complaints including one Facebook advertisement that includes a video of a woman in black ‘belle’ style lingerie smoking a cigar and an advertisement on a TV in the front window of the brand’s stores featuring a still image of a woman wearing red latex tights and gold nipple pasties. Behind her is a topless man in a pig mask.
