Getty Is Under Fire for World Cup ‘Sexiest Fans’ Gallery

Getty seems pretty knocked-out after this round

World Cup Sexiest Fans

Sometimes you shoot for moon, miss, and land among the stars—where the stars are beautiful, beautiful ladies. Getty Images, bless her heart, attempted a gallery roundup of the 2018’s World Cup sexiest fans (an easy enough task; football fans, much like the athletes, can be dreamboats) but failed to notice that it only included images of conventionally attractive women from round the globe. Uh-oh!

Listen, we’re human and humans are horny. You might even say we’re all horny humans. I get it. I love to look at sexy strangers, especially online, where they can’t look back. But this is 2018, and dumb-dumb oversights like these are going to inspire outrage. What did ya think would happen, Getty? Come on, man. Have you even been online?

The photos, as one would guess, featured a bunch of attractive women supporting their teams at the tournament — you know, the ones cameramen can’t help but cut to during matches:


The hottie gallery has since been deleted from Getty Images’ site, where it has been replaced with the following editor’s note:

Earlier, we published a piece, “World Cup 2018: The Sexiest Fans,” that did not meet our editorial standards. We regret the error and have removed the piece. There are many interesting stories to tell about the World Cup and we acknowledge this was not one of them.

I’m just surprised it got to the Tweet-and-delete stage.






Getty learned a valuable lesson for the 2022 World Cup: the next version of this gallery needs hotter male fans to avoid detection from the Twitter police.

Side note: Who the hell is going to Getty for a hot World Cup fans gallery?
