Culture: Politically correctness hasn't reached Venezuela yet.

Beer advert angers women Women's groups are angry with a beer company which said the difference between a wife and a lover was 30 kilos. The line was in a television advertisement by Regional beer in Venezuela, reports El Universal newspaper. Women's rights groups in Venezuela say the advert is a misogynist and are demanding a public apology from the company. Hwowever, Regional beer is standing its ground and says it won't apologise unless it is forced to do so by the courts. A spokesman for the company added: "I bet all these women's groups are run by women who are at least 30 kilos overweight."
