The Paris Police Department reported that at least a dozen men suffered poked eyes after brushing up against the model’s chests.
PARIS – Artists’ models in Paris stripped naked Monday, braving freezing temperatures to protest against a ban on tips and to demand better pay and recognition.
More than 20 male and female models, some posing nude while others were draped in a colorful array of shawls, sheets and fur coats, took part in the protest that had the backing of two of France’s biggest labor unions.
The action was triggered by a recent decision by the Paris authorities to enforce a ban on artists’ tips, known as “cornet” after the rolled-up cone of drawing paper in which painters traditionally dropped some money for their models.
“We’re very badly paid and it’s always been that way,” said model Carole Kras, who joined others in the courtyard of a 16th century palace that houses the Paris cultural affairs offices.
“We’ve always had the ‘cornet’ to make up for some of that but now they want to get rid of it,” she said, as shivering colleagues got dressed after briefly disrobing. (H/T - )
They got dressed after briefly disrobing? What the Hell is that? If this was really an important issue to them, they would have stayed naked until frostbite set in!
These frogs are definitely not down with the cause.
