Getty Images Removes Gallery Of The World Cup's 'Hottest Fans' After Sexism Backlash

By Mark LoProto

We no longer live in an environment where the objectification of women is acceptable. The traditional views on beauty and what the general public finds attractive is an antiquated concept that, today, is more insulting than flattering. None of this is a secret, mind you, so it’s really surprising when industry leaders still make a faux pas like listing the “Hottest fans at the World Cup.” 

The perpetrator this time was Getty Images, a world leader in stock photo agencies. In a tweet posted on - and later deleted from - Getty Images’ official Twitter page, the stock photo guru delivered a list of the World Cup’s hottest fans. The headline alone isn’t entirely shocking as one would expect it to be a melting pot of spectators from the World Cup games.
