Banks girls heat


Share post:

THIS YEAR’S BANKS Calendar Girl Competition has left a bitter taste in the mouths of some Barbadians.
“Disgusting”, “degrading” and “despicable” were some of the words used on social media sites like Facebook yesterday to describe the daring costumes worn by some of the eight contestants. The finals were held on Thursday evening at the Oistins Bay Garden in Christ Church.
Some who commented vented on the Banks Facebook page, saying they believed the competition was the problem and the company encouraged girls to wear some of the revealing swimsuits that graced the stage.
“I shall no longer support anything to do with [B]anks . . . not a [M]alt . . . not a [P]lus and definitely not a beer,” wrote Deirdre Dizzy Barker-Bailey on the Banks Facebook page.
 “As a local brand I expect better standards and parading women like w***** is not something that I am willing to support. I am totally disgusted.”
“Banks Breweries!!! Relax please!” Maurice Johnson said. “I will still drink your beer but you don’t have to do the Banks Calendar girls so. Jeeze on, man, what next? Just body paint?”
Another commenter, Maria Annel, encouraged the girls to “speak out” if they were told that the type of costumes worn were what was required of them.
