Paris Hilton Beer Advert Pulled

Paris Hilton’s controversial beer advert has been pulled from Brazilian TV networks.

The sultry beer ad featuring the socialite was pulled after consumer complaints and a watchdog agency’s investigation.

The television and internet campaign features Paris in a short black dress preening and rubbing a can of Devassa beer on herself, all to the delight of onlookers watching through her window.

Brewer Schincariol said in a statement it will defend the commercial, but is pulling it in the meantime.

An ad watchdog group, Conar, asked that the ad was removed, noting that regulations do not permit a beer commercial to treat women as overtly sensual objects. Brazil’s secretariat for women’s affairs also said it had received complaints about the ad.
