If you tend to hate women (for some weird reason), what do you get? A ban on everything you are. Your dignity, and your reputation shamed. The Advertising Standards Authority has banned UK television and print ads for Kane & Lynch because they “depict violence towards women.”
26 complaints later, by a “mixed” group (including husbands who are whipped by their wives), the ASA declared the material likely to cause serious or widespread offence as it breaches responsible Advertising Standards Codes.
The majority of the complainants believed (the) ad was offensive, because it included shocking images, which condoned violence, particularly towards women
Eidos quickly defended by stating that every child apparently sleeps at 9PM in the UK. That the ad was geared towards an “adult” timeframe. Right. Every child. Makes sense.
