The airline has come under fire after many baffled passengers shared images of their 'sexist' safety cards
Budget airline Wizz Air has been subject to a lot of online criticism after an image was shared of the safety cards provided.
The plane's in-flight safety procedures were depicted on a cartoon-style instructions card, that featured a very curvy woman in an unnaturally tight dress, posing in a rather sexual manner.
A Twitter used named Laura Watkin shared a snap of the card, branding it "sexist" and joking that the bare legs depicted would "result in some serious chafing on the emergency slide"
She added the hashtags 'body con' 'stereotype' and 'jobsforwomen'.
Laura attracted a lot of attention on her Tweet, with many responding with their views on the controversial information card.
They were mostly angered men, who unsurprisingly came to the defence of Wizz Air, calling Laura "sad" and a "snowflake" for making a lighthearted comment highlighting the inappropriately over-sexualised body type which reinforces female stereotypes.
However, Laura wasn't alone in her confusion towards the strangely sexual drawings, as other Twitter users posted images of the same information card, all equally baffled over the sexual slant.
The men who shared their own images seemed to be a bit more clued up about how oddly sexual the drawings actually were.
Wizz Air haven't responded to any of the negative Tweets and have been approached for comment by Heart.co.uk
