But a censure was discharged by a Advertising Standards Bureau (ASB) that pronounced a satire was not itself ‘discriminatory towards or disparaging of women’.
The promotion business has perceived 17 complaints about a depiction of women in a past 5 years, though usually one was upheld.

This states: ‘Advertising or selling communications should not occupy passionate interest in a demeanour that is exploitative and spiritless of any particular or organisation of people’.
