Some Find PA Liquor Control Board Ad Offensive

PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — “She didn’t want to do it, but she couldn’t say no.”

This is the text that is displayed on one of the new ads in a campaign from the PA Liquor Control Board against Teen and Young Adult drinking.

KDKA Radio’s Mike Pintek talks with Clarion University of Pennsylvania Senior and Women’s Issues Advocate Brittany Bender.

Bender explained why the ad offended her and how the ad can easily be misconstrued in the viewers’ eyes. She explains that she feels it is, “placing blame on the victim.”

You can listen to the interview here! Also you can listen to Mike Pintek weekdays Noon to 3pm.

    You got someone named Bender to comment on an alcohol story, that’s just too funny. And I agree, how can you blame a drunk for drinking, it would be like blaming the obese for eating to much.

    I learned my lesson years ago saying the same thing. Now I’m waiting for the LCB to put a video out saying “Hi…, this is the Liquor Control Board…”
