This bar in Australia used naked women as platters and offended just about everyone

When a PR stunt backfires.

A BAR IN SYDNEY, Australia has come in for all sorts of criticism after a launch party on Wednesday night drew a massive social media backlash.

The main cause of the outrage was that the event at Cruise Bar featured naked women used as serving trays:

It has been noted that there were also topless men in attendance as part of the event – but from the photographic evidence, it doesn’t appear that they were used as human platters
