A CBS show has become the focus of complaints and a petition asking the network to apologize for an episode that featured a “breastaurant” — a sports bar that features scantily clad women, reports TheWrap.com.
The show is “Undercover Boss.” The end of the show is typically when a company’s boss reveals herself or himself to employees, and offers them gifts and praise. In a recent episode, Bikinis Sports Bar & Grill Chief Executive Doug Guller offered to get breast augmentation surgery for a 23-year-old waitress. In the episode, he also fired a female employee for declining to wear a bikini top, the story reports.
“Fans online took Guller to task for, as they saw it, underpaying the female manager, and punishing one woman who didn’t want to exploit her sexuality on television and had ambition, while offering another an inappropriate ‘gift,’” the piece notes.
A Change.org petition, which reportedly had only received a few hundred supporters, asks that CBS apologize for the episode. “CBS is a fairly family oriented channel and showcasing this behavior is not acceptable,” the petition says.
