Singapore radio fined for bra removal contest

SINGAPORE (Reuters) - A Singapore radio station was fined for organising a contest in which women were asked to remove their bra as quickly as possible from under their clothes.

Singapore’s Media Development Authority said state-owned MediaCorp Radio would be fined S$15,000 (4,920 pounds) for broadcasting “exploitative and inappropriate content” in its programme “No Bra Days with the Muttons” in March.

“The two DJs had made sexually suggestive comments on how fast the bras were removed, as well as the colour, design and cup size of the bras, and the size of the girls’ breasts,” the regulator said in a statement late on Monday.

The Media Development Authority said the women were also asked to pose with their bras for videos that the radio station posted on its Web site and on the video-sharing YouTube Web site.

MediaCorp officials were not immediately available to comment.
