Rabat – An Australian bar has come under fire on social media for using naked women as human fruit platters.
Cruise Bar, in Circular Quay, Sydney, decided to hire semi-naked women to lie on tables while draped in fruit for a tropical-themed relaunch party on Wednesday.
The models were wearing skin-coloured underpants and their bodies adorned in fruit.

On their Facebook account, the bar, in the Sydney Overseas Passenger Terminal, wrote: “Amazing night to officially launch to the public. More pics to come tomorrow!”
The bar has been heavily criticized for objectifying women, with many people calling the display “unacceptable”.

Melinda Tankard-Reist, co-founder of Collective Shout, a movement against the objectification of women in the media told Daily Mail Australia: “I hope people decide to boycott Cruise Bar en masse for treating women like trays. It is part of the ongoing objectification of women to use them as serving trays and just part of the buffet.”
“Someone has to tell this company it’s the 21st century and this is not appropriate. I hope they’re punished,” she added.
