A US jewellery store is being slammed for its latest advertising campaign that suggests women like violence sometimes, so long as there’s bling involved.
Sharing their latest campaign on billboards throughout Asheville, North Carolina, Spicer Greene Jewellers’ latest ad reads, “Sometimes, It’s ok to throw rocks at girls…”
Alongside the slogan are images of precious gemstones.
Unsurprisingly, the billboards have drawn a huge amount of criticism because, you know, some people would argue that no, women don’t like it, even if it does shine.
Spicer Greene ‘s initial response to the backlash was to issue a statement that explained the slogan was meant “as a play on words to encourage the loving act of gift giving.”
Unfortunately for the company, though, the internet did not see it that way.
Chelsea Clinton tweeted, “Talking about hitting girls is never funny. Ever.”
