TV show suspended for teaching women how to shop 'sexily' and not 'spread legs'

A TV show sparked outrage after one segment featured a pole dance teacher advising women on “how to shop sexy.”

Scantily clad women in high heels and mini bottoms demonstrate how to ‘arch their backs’, lift a knee for ‘extra intrigue’ or ‘squat’ while making sure not to ‘spread my legs to make the situation vulgar’, while reaching up or bending over to reach products on the supermarket shelves.

A model in high heels and leather shorts is shown giving a tutorial on how to move women through the store in a sexy and provocative way, and even demonstrating how to push a trolley in a seductive way.

The Italian Italian television show ‘Detto Fatto’ – which translates into English as ‘as soon as possible’, has now been suspended over the segment, which, as the BBC noted, was broadcast ironically on the eve of the International Day for the Extermination violence against women.

The segment started with pole dancing teacher and ballerina Emily Angelillo performing a dance.



Then she advised women on wearing high heels at the supermarket and the like.

Then she candidly tells how a woman, dressed as she was, should pick up something when it falls to the floor.

She says, “I squatted with one knee bent more than the other, keeping my legs closed so I don’t spread my legs to make the situation vulgar.”

The outrage later forced Angelillo to apologize through her Facebook page, admitting that she “felt sorry for all the women who felt offended.”

Italy’s own public broadcaster, Rai, has now launched an investigation as politicians voiced outrage among sections of the viewing public.

Rai CEO of broadcaster Fabrizio Salini said: “[The episode] had nothing to do with the spirit of public service and Rai’s editorial line. “

He said he put the show on hold and ordered an investigation into how the idea got on screen.

Meanwhile, the show’s host, Bianca Guaccero, also had to apologize, which she said she did “on behalf of my entire team.”

She added, “As I’ve always done in my life, I’ll make sure this never happens again.”

The show was outright condemned on social media.

Cecilia D’Elia, spokeswoman for the Democratic Women’s Conference, said: “Salini and RAI executives need to answer public opinion and women about what has happened” and the show showed a stereotypical “image of the woman running public service. is unworthy “.

While Secretary of State Andrea Martella said, “Maybe a tutorial would be needed, not on how to shop, but on how to do a public service without trampling on Rai’s value and history.”
