A Perth pub has faced a public backlash after promoting a GI Jane-themed ANZAC eve party on social media.
The Brass Monkey posted an image to its Facebook page advertising the ‘GI JANE: Celebrating Sisters That Serve’ event, which features bullets and a woman in a GI Jane outfit and full makeup, holding a machine gun. The poster encouraged party-goers to dress up to win prizes.
After receiving criticism from the public, the pub removed the poster from its Facebook page.
When Mamamia reached out to The Brass Monkey for comment, the pub said that although there was "no disrespect intended" when they organised the event, they were not prepared to comment on it.
