When I was in London this passed weekend, I stayed with a friend from high school. In order to get the full experience, she wanted to take me to China Town for dinner. Right in front of the restaurant we went to there was a movie theater. On the billboard for the theater, the words “FCUK THE OLYMPIX COME SEE A MOVIE,” existed in big bold black letters. As I looked at this sign, a lot of things ran through my head. Is that allowed? Aren’t having the Olympics an honor? Doesn’t this make the theater look bad? Who would support a theater that seems to be against one of the greatest cultural events in the world? While the words on the theater may not have meant to evoke these feelings, it did. The words were not funny, they were offensive, and I am not even from England. I wonder how the people who have called London home for many years felt about this. I think there is a line to be drawn here and this billboard should have been taken down. Doesn’t this make the city look bad to the millions of tourists that have traveled to London for the Olympics? My question is, should something like this be allowed as a form of Advertising, or for the sake of the city’s reputation, and the respect of the Olympics should this sign be taken down?
