TFL has confirmed it will pull a Channel 4 advert for the show Naked Attraction which points to passengers and jokingly claims they ‘love being naked’ from their network.
The broadcaster has already apologised for the advert, which appears to have been an attempt at a tongue in cheek joke gone wrong.
The picture attached of a TFL bus displays an advertising panel for the C4 show, which asks its contestants to choose a potential partner based on what they look like naked.
It has three descriptions of hypothetical people who may be passengers on the bus with arrows pointing upwards to the person sat inside the vehicle.
One is captioned ‘Loves Naked Attraction,’ the second ‘Hates Naked Attraction’ and the other ‘Loves Being Naked.’
But a TFL spokesperson told Metro.co.uk: ‘We work tirelessly to ensure public transport is a safe environment for everyone, and any report of sexual assault or inappropriate behaviour is investigated and treated extremely seriously.
‘In an ideal world this would be a bit silly but my god, read the room!’ echoed a fourth.
King, who started the thread, went on to remind the subject of jokes made in this fashion absolutely’ should not be a ‘sexualised one.’
Naked Attraction can be streamed on All 4 now.
