Reebok forced to pull controversial 'Cheat On Your Girlfriend, Not Your Workout' ad campaign

A controversial Reebok ad has been removed from display following widespread complaints.

The poster, which ran at a gym affiliated with the brand in Germany, was intended to motivate, with the slogan: 'Cheat on your girlfriend, not on your workout.'

Instead, however, it was met with a consumer backlash, and the sportswear firm pulled the ad and acknowledged that it was 'offensive'.

The promotional gaffe was not part of a worldwide marketing campaign, but thanks to social media, the reaction has been global.

This is bullshit; studies have shown that women are more likely to cheat than men.
