PLCB Ad Pulled

State pulls internet ad after being accused of victim blaming.
HARRISBURG -  The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is reacting to complaints about an internet ad aimed at protecting young women from date rape.

The LCB pulled from its million-dollar campaign an ad showing a young woman's legs on a tiled floor with her panties around her ankles and a caption reading, "She didn't want to do it, but she couldn't say no." 

The ad was aimed at warning women about the dangers of drinking too much, but the very people it hoped to protect complained in large numbers that it blamed the victim.
