DB’s porn billboard falls to protests
DB Breweries has agreed to take down a billboard asking “Would you rather watch porn with your Mum or your sister?”, after protesters said it was offensive.
The billboard in Hamilton’s CBD advertises a pre-mixed drink made by DB.
It sparked furious debate on talk-back radio this morning after advocacy group Voice Waikato put up a sign in response saying “This is offensive – porn hurts women and children” . . .
Family First NZ earlier issued a statement saying the billboard glorified pornography.
“It is offensive to many, and ignores the harm that pornography is doing in our community and the contribution it makes to family breakdown, addiction, aggressive sexual behaviour, sex role stereotyping, and viewing people simply as sexual objects,” national director Bob McCroskie said.
