You’re the Nuts!

It’s been a difficult week for the male population after a campaign from UK Feminista and others resulted in the Co-op’s ruling that ‘lads’ magazines must come in modesty bags within six weeks, or be removed from sale in stores!

Us digital geeks at PHA Media have thoroughly enjoyed spectating the social media frenzy that has followed the announcement and we’ve been particularly impressed by the social actions of Men’s magazine Nuts. The magazine took no time at all to mount an online campaign against the decision… we particularly like the headline!

Hands off out Nuts!

The shareable image reads: “These magazines are entirely legal and bring entertainment and enjoyment to many thousands of men – and women – across the UK, and I see no reason why they should be banned to appease the views of a minority protest group.”

The above image was complimented by the coined hashtag ‘#KeepTheLadsMags,’ which has been supported by both male and female readers and a number of glamour models and TV stars.

Even the magazine’s ex female social media assistant, Susie Verrill, has backed their corner – but in a slightly more dignified way…




We’ll be keeping a close eye on the Twitter war over the next couple of weeks so stay tuned for an update!
