News Corp mag Sunday Style slammed for on-all-fours woman Instagram intern ad

A News Corp style magazine has come under fire for releasing a belittling call for interns featuring an image of a woman wearing lingerie posing on a bed on all fours.

The offending image in the intern posting

Sunday Style, an Australian glossy magazine launched in March 2013 for “style conscious individuals”, posted the ad on Instagram today (9 January) but quickly removed it in response to criticism from followers.

The offending post was first noticed by Twitter user @SuzanneCarbone, a journalist at Melbourne news outlet The Age.

Sunday Style issued an apology for the post on Instagram where the original image was uploaded.

However, the post has been widely condemned by social media users.

Sunday Style is a weekly style magazine with a circulation just shy of 900,000 copies.
