A nightclub's come UNDER FIRE after posting a promo pic of Geordie Shore's Gaz Beadle holding staff members' boobs; with one feminist group claiming the 'offensive' ad condones sexual assault and harassment.

Unit 17 in Ipswich, Suffolk used a shot of Gaz to promote an A-level club night, but have since taken it down following a bit of a backlash.

Helen Taylor, who set up Suffolk Feminist Society, said: "Our members were very concerned when they saw the promotion on Unit 17's Facebook page.

"The issue wasn't just that it caused us offence, it is that the advert was offensive. We are hopeful that working with Unit 17 and the Deltic Group on rolling out their 'We Care' initiative here in Ipswich will help to combat the negative image that we think has been created.

"We are in the process of arranging a meeting to talk to them about making sure that a zero tolerance approach towards sexual assault and harassment is a key part of the training and promotion of 'We Care'.

"Above all, we want young women to feel secure in the knowledge that they can visit Unit 17 and not feel vulnerable and that everyone knows it is not acceptable."

Blimey.

HOWEVER Unit 17 reckon the pic was actually posted 'in error,' releasing a statement to explain: "We do not tolerate or condone sexual harassment of any kind and work hard to ensure that Unit 17 provides a safe and welcoming environment for all our guests.

"The Facebook post, which we have removed, was unacceptable and we apologise for any offence caused.

.

"We will be retraining our team on our social media policy, which states that posts of this nature should never be made."

Even the Advertising Standards Authority are involved now, saying: "On this occasion we note you mention the ad in question has now been taken down so it seems unlikely any further action is required."
