Last month, Londoners elected Sadiq Khan as mayor over his Conservative Party rival. The election was significant, as Khan became the first Muslim mayor of a major European city. The election was also controversial due to many allegations of Khan's ties to Islamic extremists.
This week, Khan appears to have satisfied many of the politically correct social justice warriors that helped elect him when he banned sexy women from appearing in ads in London.
Sadiq Khan, London’s first Muslim mayor, announced Monday that “body shaming” advertisements will no longer be allowed in London’s public transport.
“As the father of two teenage girls, I am extremely concerned about this kind of advertising which can demean people, particularly women, and make them ashamed of their bodies. It is high time it came to an end,” Khan said.
The mayor added, “Nobody should feel pressurised, while they travel on the Tube or bus, into unrealistic expectations surrounding their bodies and I want to send a clear message to the advertising industry about this.”
The move came after a Change.org petition — a popular tool of social justice warriors — gathered 70,000 signatures in opposition to a weight loss ad featuring a sexy woman in a bikini triggered some of London's heftier residents.
