Wonder Woman has been scrapped from her post as an honorary United Nations ambassador after being criticised for being an unsuitable role model for women and girls.
The comic book heroine was named the UN’s Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls only two months ago in a venture that was controversial from its inception.
Despite the superhero’s premature firing – it was believed the comic book character would be used in the campaign into 2017 – a spokesperson for the UN denied she was being fired and that the partnership has come to its natural end.
“It’s ending because it’s ending. And it was always meant to end,” UN spokesperson Jeffrey A. Brez told The Associated Press.
“The objective was to reach out to Wonder Woman’s fans and I think we did a great job of that,” he added.
