Premier calls for Wicked boy­cott

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

QUEENS­LAND Premier An­nasta­cia Palaszczuk has urged peo­ple to boy­cott Wicked Campers un­til of­fen­sive and deroga­tory slo­gans are re­moved from the com­pany’s camper­van fleet.

Her call comes af­ter Queens­land’s peak mo­tor­ing body, the RACQ, urged the State Gov­ern­ment to crack down on the com­pany for flout­ing ad­ver­tis­ing stan­dards on the roads.

The Premier said she would have At­tor­ney-Gen­eral Yvette D’Ath look at ways to stop Wicked’s of­fen­sive and ob­scene slo­gans, but ad­ver­tis­ing breaches were a na­tional is­sue.

She urged the pub­lic to take ac­tion in the first in­stance.

“Peo­ple can boy­cott them,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

“It is un­ac­cept­able to have those vile slo­gans on those vans.”
