Parents Angry: Hooters Girls Sponsor Cub Scouts (Video)


Parents in Denver are outraged because some Hooters Girls recently posed for photos and sponsored an event for the Cub Scouts at a local day camp (video below).

The pictures featured the young women wearing jackets and T-shirts, but not their Hooters shirts and orange shorts that are worn in the restaurant, according to Fox News Insider.

A few of the pictures were posted on the Hooters Colorado Facebook page, but were later taken down, reports KMGH.

"And I step back for a second and I take a look and I'm like, 'Are they wearing Hooters visors? Wait a minute,'" said Michelle Kettleborough, a mother of one of the Cub Scouts.

"Quite honestly we're questioning whether we're going to keep him in the organization at all next year," Kettleborough added.

In response to the controversy, the Boy Scouts of America released a statement:

A restaurant extended support to help make a local Cub Scout Day Camp possible and provided volunteers for the camp. The group of trained volunteers mistakenly wore the wrong attire and it was addressed by our Council leadership. The Boy Scouts of America relies on millions of dedicated volunteers and we are very appreciative of their commitment. We extend our apologies for this mistake and look forward to continuing our mission of serving youth in the Denver area.

"It's like polar opposites of what Boy Scouts are supposed to be," Marsha Corn, another parent, told KMGH.

"And we love the Scouts," Corn added. "We think they made a very poor choice, and what I would like and what I think would go a long way again is some accountability. I want an apology."

Corn complained in an email to a Boy Scouts local chapter, which responded: "The restaurant assisted with the costs of putting on the camp, and through their community volunteering several of their waitresses donated their time to help staff the camp. Glad to hear your son had such a good time."

None of the moms has said exactly why the Hooters Girls are offensive.

A Hooters manager said three employees a day volunteered their time during the three-day camp, and the Denver Area Council noted that the restaurant made a financial contribution as well.
