Mellish Motors in Prince Edward Island, Canada is attracting attention for all the wrong reasons. The dealership, which has posted humorous signs in the past, has perhaps gone a little far with its most recent gags.
According to BuzzFeed News, Chelsea Ling noticed this sign a week ago.
"Women are like snowflakes / they can't drive," it reads. "It doesn’t make sense and it’s just a pot shot at women," Ling said of the sign.
"It is just a stupid and harmful joke. Very stupid," Becka Viau commented on Facebook. Andy Roberts wrote, "I'm not 'outraged,' but frankly, it's not funny, and brushing this kind of sexism off as a joke is what's potentially more worrying, because you're basically implying it's ok. It would be funny if it were a true observation, but it isn't."
After the picture gained some attention, the dealership's sign changed but retained its sexist quality.
Maybe the first was a bad joke but this is blatant taunting. Shame! pic.twitter.com/XllIteb8TS— Chelsea Van Tol (@PaperCakes) January 17, 2016
