Wicked Campers online petition succeeds

A recent online petitioned titled ‘Eliminate misogynistic and degrading slogans and imagery’ has had major backing, so much so the Wicked Campers online petition succeeds thanks to 127,751 supporters.

The person behind the change.org petition is Sydney school teacher Paula Orbea, and she wanted to get word out about Wicked Campers and its sexism slogans on its camper vans. Within just four days of starting the petition the victory result was in.

One slogan on the back of the Wicked Camper van read, “In every princess, there’s a little slut who wants to try it just once,” another said, “A wife: An attachment you screw-on the bed to get the housework done.”

After the confirmed victory, hire company Wicked Campers promised they would look into and remove the sexist marketing slogans from its vans within the next 6 months. In the petition, one part based on the slogan “In every princess, there’s a little sl*t who wants to try it just once,” says it promotes pedophilia and states its abhorrent to sexually assault a girl.

The petitions 127,751 supporters agreed with Paula Orbea, other Wicked Campers slogans included, ‘Fat girls are harder to kidnap’, ‘A blow*** is a great last minute gift!’, ‘Save the whales, harpoon a Jap, another included the words ‘I wouldn’t trust anything that bleeds for five days and doesn’t die!’

The slogans are harsh and promotes nothing and many agree it promotes nothing other than sexism and racism.

The change.org petition posted its confirmed victory message stating ‘We’ve just won!’ and Wicked Campers have said sorry and will be removing all misogynistic slogans from their vans within six months as said above. According to the updated message Wicked Campers have received fines in the past over the slogans and did not care about the uproar.
