Transsexual Complaints over Irn-Bru Ad
By Sherna Noah, Media Correspondent, PA News
A TV advert for soft drink Irn-Bru has been criticised by the media watchdog for mocking transsexuals.
The advert shows children singing with their mother at the piano, before she ends the song “even though I used to be a man”.
The children stop singing and look dumbfounded at their embarrassed father.
Viewers then see the mother in the bathroom whistling cheerfully, while shaving her lathered face.
