  • Public outrage as Tiger Tiger plans to give away a R30 000 boob job for National Cleavage Day
    Posted by on Mar 20th, 2013

    It’s no secret that the original purpose of National Cleavage Day in South Africa has over the years gone from women being proud of their cleavage to pretty much a titty ball fest on social media. It’s descended into a marketing tool for companies latching (sorry) onto the whole sex sells mentality and is seen by the majority of the fairer sex as insulting and objectifying women.

    Enter popular club Tiger Tiger who have decided that they are gonna go with the lets-piss-women-off approach and give away a R30 000 boob job on National Cleavage Day.

    Someone should tell their marketing department it’s not going well so far.

    The Facebook page is littered with irate females and a few trolls who are obviously stoking the fire.

    There’s plenty where that came from.

    Twitter isn’t much better and you go search the comments or check 2Oceansvibe HERE.

    What say you?

    Sometimes I think we’re back in apartheid South Africa. I hate it when people decide to preach to others what they can and cannot do, based on their own prejudices and moronic ideas.

    If you don’t want to win a boob job, then don’t enter. Simple really.

    If the existence of a competition to win a boob job offends you, then please keep your whining to yourself. Or move to Saudi Arabia, you’ll love it there. It’s nice a strict.

    (Above rant not aimed at anyone specific. Its aimed at the general preachy moany types)

    Wow. Giving away a R30k boob job? Can I win pec implants too? If not, that’s sexist.

    What if the prize was a gym membership? Or a Makeover? Or a free consultation at a dietician? Photo shoot? When exactly does the word “objectify” start getting thrown around? What a gross overreaction! (Sure, Strawberry Lips might have worded some of their statements better.)

    How far you are prepared to go to feel better about yourself is a personal choice.

    Personally I wouldnt want a Boob Job but who am I to judge someone who would? And if that person can get it done for free, more power to them!

    Are you comparing a photoshoot or gym membership to a boob job? You are joking right?

    Some people’s logical thinking astounds me!

    This is a joke! How can this be making news? There are far worse things out there than a club offering girls something that they may want but couldn’t afford if they dreamed of it! Who are you to say it is distasteful. If it offends you that much, close the page and move onto something more in line with what your beliefs are, if you can’t do that, thatbisnonly your problem. Your opinion is obviously freely expressed, however don’t say that, that is the opinion of the majority because I can guarantee you now that there will be plenty of ladies who will be trying to win this, to either help them with their self confidence or just enhance their lives in any way they feel that it may do so or may it is just something they want. Who are you to judge the competition or what they are offering as well as the people participating. And yes, the job of a marketing department is to use the most effective techniques within the framework of what the law allows, to “enhance” the brand and bring feet in the door, isn’t that what companies do? Try to generate a profit? Oh no wait, they just operate for the joy of it and making a profit is a bonus..
