Newspaper in ‘slut’ storm

A local newspaper is in trouble for labelling models who would be performing at a private lingerie fashion show as “sluts.”

The New York Daily News reports California’s Carmel Pine Cone sparked outrage by printing the offensive word above a picture of the women on its front page.

Newspaper bosses say it was simply reporting the words of a concerned resident who spoke out against the lingerie and tequila show at a council meeting.

But Racey Promotions, the PR firm behind Thursday’s event, want damages – saying the snap was used without permission and the word is defamatory to those appearing in it.

It also says that two of the girls in the picture, aged 17 and 18, did not attend the $50 show at the Vesuvio restaurant – and are now at risk of cyber-bullying.
