Pro soccer team FC Seoul apologizes after filling their stands with ‘sex dolls’ for televised match

The Seoul Football Club has apologized for using “sex dolls” to fill empty stands during a Sunday game against Gwangju in the South Korean capital.

Due to “pandemic infection prevention measures,” fans are still banned from going to the stadium, but sex dolls were seated in their place.

Many of the dolls were holding up signs and wearing team colors.

According to CNN, the comments on Instagram are generally unfavorable, with many finding the dolls disturbing.

“The female mannequin dressed in a white short sleeve t-shirt, the breast excessively stood out, and the nipples were protruding, but you didn’t know they were an adult product?” wrote another fan on Instagram. “You are kidding me.”

Seoul FC issued a statement claiming that the dolls are not sex dolls, but mannequins designed to look more realistic.

“Regarding the cheer mannequins that were installed during the game on the 17th, we sincerely apologize for causing deep concern to the fans,” the statement said.

While staff reportedly “went through the confirmation process that they were not adult products several times,” they failed to notice that there was an ad for adult products visible on game day.

“This is our fault without excuse,” said the club. “Regardless of the reason, we apologize again for causing great concern to the fans who love and cheer for FC Seoul.”
