Source – An American brewery has been criticised for selling a beer called ‘Dumb Blonde’ which they claim ‘goes down easy’. The Texas-based Deep Ellum Brewing has been condemned for relying on ‘rape culture’ to sell the product, which uses a picture of a doll wearing a blonde wig on the can. The company has also been using the controversial logo and catchphrase on a pink van as part of a marketing campaign to celebrate a year since the drink was first released. In a post on the political blog Burn Orange Report, writer Genevieve Cato said the way the company was selling the beer was ‘unacceptable’. ’Deep Ellum’s lazy use of this well-worn sexist comparison of women to alcohol is disappointing and insulting to their female customers, but it goes deeper than that. ’You need to look no further than the comments on their Facebook picture to see the way advertising like this fuels the acceptability of rape culture in our society.
