Take down the "Freshest Meat outside of a Prison" Billboard
This petition made change with 434 supporters!
This billboard is mocking sexual violence and prison rape in an advertisement for a restaurant. Rape culture includes the use of sexual violence as the subject matter for jokes, when sexual violence deeply impacts survivors' lives and should not be the fodder for jokes or advertisements. Chino Latino is owned by Parasole which also owns numerous other Minneapolis restaurants. Their number is 612-822-0016
Many human rights groups such as Human Rights Watch and Stop Prisoner Rape have cited numerous incidents showing that prison staff tolerate sexual violence as a means of controlling the prison population in general. Not only does this advertisement find humor in sexual violence, it is also based on sexual violence that occurs in prison, and it is well established that U.S. prisons have disproportionate numbers of minorities and people with disabilities. This advertisement is shameful and needs to be removed.
