Bristol’ Mom’s against Hooters

Marks & Spencer granted an empty space to Hooters, the restaurant chain famous by their busty waitresses, but mom’s are uniting forces trying to stop them.

Shortly after the announcement that Marks & Spencer would be subleting its former “Simply Food” shop to the US based Hooters food chain, protesters have turned their attention to M&S who own the unit at Millennium Square in which Hooters will be opening.

Bristol City Council’s licensing committee granted permission for the branch earlier this month but online parenting forum Mumsnet is backing a campaign against the move, and urging its one million monthly visitors to boycott M&S until it cancels the deal.

According to the Mumsnet’s forum member who started the pledge, “the site is virtually opposite 3 apartment blocks, the lower floors of which are social housing and children are living in them.”

The member who is identified as JessinAvalon at mumsnet.com goes on:
“What’s most disappointing is that Marks and Spencer are leasing the site to ‘Hooters’. They have been e-mailed by many concerned people to ask if they will reconsider leasing the building but they have just replied saying it is a “commercial decision” (as if that makes it ok!). In Sheffield, a ‘Hooters’ didn’t even make it to application stage because the developer (Ask Pizza) realised that it would be better not to be associated with a company like ‘Hooters’.

Marks and Spencer don’t seem that concerned, however. Although they have signed up to the “Let Girls Be Girls” Mumsnet campaign they are not concerned about a company which sells merchandise including babygros which say “Future Hooters Girl” and “Does my butt look big in this?”

I have written to Marks and Spencer telling them that I won’t be shopping in their stores again. If you feel strongly about this, please e-mail:

‘Hooters’ tries to sell itself as a family friendly restaurant but it is anything but. The Hooters in Nottingham attracts mainly stag parties and football fans. Hooters Girls take part in bikini contests and iced wet t-shirt competitions (the t-shirts are put in the freezers before the girls wear them). ‘Hooters’ has links to Playboy magazine….I could go on…..

I think Marks and Spencer should be shamed for facilitating this company’s expansion into Bristol. They are selling women and girls down the river by leasing to this company and all just to make a “quick buck”.

Thanks everyone.”

Hooters Girls help cleaning the Gulf of Mexico donating their Pantyhose

As everyone knows, Hooters Girls are famous for their shiny pantyhose. But now they are using their said pantyhose for a good cause, help cleaning up the Gulf Coast.

Hooters Girls nationwide are donating their torn pantyhose to Indigo Oceanic and Matter of Trust in an effort to help absorb the oil which is devastating the Gulf of Mexico. Through the program, ingeniously titled Project Pantyhose, Hooters expects to collect over 100,000 pairs of hose which will be used to create booms, possibly soaking up 1 million gallons of oil.

Once laundered, the pantyhose will be stuffed with hair, fur and fleece in order to make the oil-absorbent booms. And if the panty-booms are reused 8 times, which is expected, they could ultimately absorb 1 million gallons of oil in the Gulf.

Hooters has teamed up with environmental non-profits Indigo Oceanic and Matter of Trust, two organizations creating the panty-booms. The booms will be grouped together and sent out into the Gulf to block the oil from reaching the coast.

According to the company, the life expectancy of a pair of pantyhose worn by Hooters Girls at work is about 2-3 shifts. And with 380 Hooters locations across the U.S. collecting pantyhose for the next four weeks, the goal is to create 15 miles of booms. Mike McNeil, Vice President of Marketing, Hooters of America, said in the company’s own style:
“Who would have thought our Hooters Girls’ pantyhose would have a use other than making the girls’ legs look great.”

Hooters employee has to loose weight or loose her job

The 20 year old college student Cassie has even been offered free gym membership by Hooters to help her slim down.

Alexis Aleshire, Public Relations Manager Hooters of America says: “We will say that our practice of upholding an image standard based on appearance, attitude and fitness for Hooters Girls is both legal and fair. It is not unlike the standard used by the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders or the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes.”


For Cassie Smith this ultimate on her 2nd year review was a devastating experience, in her own words:
“I was horrified. I was completely heartbroken. I was humiliated,”
“I don’t want other girls to have to go through this. I don’t want anyone to have to go through this,”
“If I could’ve gone back and not worked there for two years to take back that feeling, I would do it.”
