Stupidest Ad courtesy of Singapore

Don’t think that stupidity lords over Malaysia only. Honestly, we do not have a monopoly on stupidity even if it seems that we love to indulge in stupid talk and we are passionate about doing stupid things.
A Singaporean clothing brand is in hot soup after it featured a young model with the words “rape us now” under it.
Fashion label Supergirl ran the ad online to coincide with last week’s Black Friday sale.
The ad, which also appeared to feature an underage model with her eyes closed, caused the obligatory social media shitstorm and was promptly removed.
A spokesperson for the brand, Jordus Lim, immediately apologized and said the ad had gone live and not been vetted by the usual management checks.
“I hereby acknowledge that we have made a mistake, and that our caption does not advocate the right values to the young women community today,” Lim said in the statement.
Still the damage is already done.
And since we are talking about that tiny dot called Singapore, here’s an interesting question I came across it becomes especially pertinent since UMNO are having their general assembly this month (December 08-12):
ANSWER: Because there is no UMNO in Singapore!
It was a sizzling screamer of a game when Jurgen Klopp's side routed Southampton 6-1 on Wednesday to set up a League Cup semi-final tie against Stoke.
In fact, Sadio Mane gave Southampton the lead in just thirty-nine seconds but the Saints discovered soon enough that Liverpool were not going to cave in that easily.
Daniel Sturridge struck twice in the 25th and 29th-minute to put Liverpool in command. Divock Origi deflected in Alberto Moreno's shot in the forty-fifth minute and hammered home a spectacular fourth in the sixty-eighth minute before substitute Jordon Ibe, on for Sturridge just before the hour, drove home a fine finish in the 73rd-minute. Origi again was on the ball and he glanced home a header in the 86th-minute for his third and Liverpool's sixth to complete the thrashing.
