There is a Hooters in Great Britain that is making major headlines across the entire globe after they announced that their location was sponsoring a soccer team for boys under age 10.
The restaurant revealed the unconventional collaboration via social media on Wednesday. “Hooters Nottingham are proud to be the new sponsors of Burton Joyce Under 10s. We wish you all the luck this season boys. Go smash it,” they wrote.
The announcement came with pictures showing members of the team posing up-close with two Hooters waitresses.
The restaurant’s famous logo will appear on the team’s soccer jerseys, but it remains unclear if it will go any further than that.
According to the Daily Mail, one critic asked, “Why are Hooters sexualizing kids, and who on earth allowed them?”
Another pointed out that the team is co-ed. “This isn’t funny. Girls are playing for this team too.”
Not everybody is upset over the news:
