Belvadere, you might Rape a Bitch?

Dailymail – A Belvedere Vodka advert went down less than smoothly than planned, leaving the company furiously back-peddling after it appeared to belittle the seriousness of sex attacks.  The ad, which was shared on the brand’s official Twitter and Facebook feeds on Friday, pictures a terrified-looking woman lurching away from a grinning man, with the slogan ‘Unlike Some People Belvedere Always Goes Down Smoothly’ written across the bottom. An apology from the brand only made matters worse, with fans complaining it failed to address the apparent rape reference.  Another wrote on Facebook: ‘Belvedere Vodka, your apology is insufficient as it does not accept responsibility for promoting rape-culture.’

Listen it takes a lot to offend me.  After all we make fun of everything and everybody.   But even I know when crossing the line is crossing the line.  I mean to say this Belverdere Vodka ad is offensive would be doing a disservice to the word offensive.   There is just no place for this in today’s society.   If people want to get chicks loaded and take advantage of them while drunk they’ll have to choose another vodka to do it.   That is my pledge to you.
