FC Seoul Release Statement About Sex Dolls In The Crowd

FC Seoul Release Statement About Sex Dolls In The Crowd

South Korean football team FC Seoul have had to apologise after viewers noticed the mannequins they placed in the stands for Sunday's game looked suspiciously like sex dolls.

For their game against Gwangju FC on the weekend the side from the capital decided to place mannequins around the ground, to give the game a more real feel.

However instead of your every day shop mannequins they looked a lot like sex dolls, as pointed out by many on social media, forcing the club to apologise for a misunderstanding.

In a statement on Instagram and Facebook the club apologised saying, "We would like to apologise to the fans. We are deeply sorry."

Claiming using the sex dolls was a mix up and that they had checked with the supplier and had been told that wasn't the dolls intended use the club added, "We would like to clarify that while these mannequins have been made to look and feel like real humans, they are not for sexual use - as confirmed by the manufacturer. We had them supplied by a company named Dalcom, which claimed they are clothing mannequins. We double, triple checked that they are not for sexual use."

"...Our intention was to do something light-hearted in these difficult times. We will think hard about what we need to do to ensure that something like this never happens again."

Korean news website Koreaboo pointed out that the mannequins, or sex dolls as we should probably just refer to them, were holding advertising boards with some advertising adult content live streamers.

The anatomy of the dolls also suggests that it's quite obvious to work out what they're meant to be used for, and it's not 'watching' the football.

Fans weren't exactly convinced by the apology or excuse. One took to social media saying, "Even if on paper, it is said to be non-sexual, they should have realised while installing the mannequins. Don't be obtuse. You're not fooling anyone."

Another added, "I don't believe the representatives didn't notice the abnormalities. I can see what a dumb group of administrators make up this team's management."

And a third said, "Didn't know, my ass. This only shows how incompetent they are as a whole."

At least the controversy didn't effect the team on the pitch with Seoul running out 1-0 winners against Gwangju to pick up their first points of the season.

Perhaps next time they'll stick to Tifos made out of soft toys, like Daegu City, or from drawings by local children, like Ansan City. They're generally better vibes for football clubs than sex toys.
