Students at Warwick University are petitioning a local bar to remove its “sexist, racist and violent” wallpaper which advertises for prostitutes, black slave girls and a “busty Asian schoolgirl”.
Despite the “disgusting” decor, the Moo Bar in Leamington Spa is listed as a “highlight” of Warwick nightlife by a student union society.
The bar was recently re-decorated by owner Steve Smith, who also runs the Smack nightclub and Duke Terrace pub.
Warwick’s anti sexism society has now set up a petition on Change.org to get the wallpaper removed.
“The images sexualise school girls, slavery and violence using text such as “Busty Indian schoolgirl”, and “Black runaway slave girl aged 18 yrs seeks plantation master.”
