Topless Maids van sparks outrage in Burbank
Burbank, CA, United States (4E) – Several Burbank residents and business owners expressed their disgust Tuesday about a van advertising topless maids because it is not appropriate to their city’s image.
The bright pink van that says ‘Topless Maids for $99′ with a phone number is now the subject of controversy after it was parked on Olive Avenue Tuesday night for less than 72 hours.
Disgusted individuals described the vehicle as a creeper van, demeaning to women, shouldn’t be in a family town and gross.
Traffic enforcement said that based on the tire marking, the van had been there for less than 72 hours while Drew Sugars, a spokesman for the city, said that if it was parked for over 72 hours in one spot, then it’s not allowed in Burbank.
According to Sugars, the city has been receiving complaints from residents and the City Council has responded by directing the staff to examine the laws.
But not everyone is offended by the van because it is not using offensive language nor a curse word.
One man, who said he stands for free speech, noted that it is simply saying topless maid.
The notorious service has been featured in “The Ellen Show” after Ellen DeGeneres and her guest Matthew Perry called the topless maids during a commercial break.
DeGeneres said that during a previous call to the company, she learned that business is booming and that there two ladies in the service fee: the fully clothed one handles the heavy cleaning and the topless one does the light cleaning.
There are around 30 girls on staff and topless men are available, too.
