Fruit on naked women - level 2
Recently, a new bar opened in Sydney. Part of the bar’s opening ceremony was something a little unusual. The fruit platters were topless women!
People took pictures of the women who were lying on large wooden tables. They uploaded the pictures to social media which led to a backlash. One user could not believe that something like this would happen in this day and age.
However, not everyone was so shocked. One user called all of it a storm in a teacup.
Difficult words: platter (a large plate for serving food), backlash (a strong negative reaction), a storm in a teacup (a great reaction of shock about something which may not really be shocking).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
