DENVER (AP) – Parents in Denver are complaining after finding out their children attended a Cub Scouts camp that was sponsored by Hooters.
KMGH-TV reports Michelle Kettleborough picked up her 7-year-old son from the Frontier District Day Camp and found him surrounded by people wearing Hooters visors.
But parents say it isn’t the attire that irritates them — the women were wearing shorts and fitted T-shirts — but that Hooters doesn’t fit the philosophy of the Scouts.
The Boy Scouts of America Denver Area Council says the restaurant chain, known for its scantily clad waitresses and sports-bar atmosphere, approached the organization about working with the Scouts.
Hooters Colorado had posted photos of boys holding their craft projects and posing with employees but removed the images for a while, then reposted them with this statement:
“We have opted to repost pictures due to a news story that ran this evening that was completely inaccurate! We are disappointed a good deed was portrayed in a poor light. This is our attempt to right the situation. We enjoyed volunteering our time and look forward to future events! #Hooters #Proud2GiveBack.”
