A Sydney bar, which thought it would be a good idea to use naked women as “living fruit platters,” quickly drew the ire of social media users when they published photos of the watering hole’s tropical-themed opening party on Facebook. The Cruise Bar’s page was quickly inundated with angry comments from the public. Jane Oakley unloaded, writing, “Thanks Cruise Bar for so openly showing your contempt for women and contributing to the disgusting view that women’s bodies are just a utensil. I won’t be coming to your venue when I’m looking for a night out.” While some came to the bar’s defense, arguing there were semi-nude male models at the party as well, others pointed out that they weren’t being as grossly objectified as the women, “lying on their backs like slabs of meat.” Cruise Bar hasn’t commented on the controversy yet.
