'Happy Prostitute' Ads Pulled After Public Outcry

fox2now.com Published: June 5, 2013

After receiving widespread criticism, Brazil’s health ministry has scrapped an online campaign called “I’m happy being a prostitute,” according to CNN.

To be clear, prostitution is legal in Brazil and is expected to spike as the nation gears up for the FIFA World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016, CNN reports.

On Tuesday, Health Minister Alexandre Padilha dropped the campaign, telling reporters he didn’t think it was a message his office should be sending.
