Taiwan Metro Cards with Porn Star Images!

0

A special edition of metro cards in Taiwan featuring the clothed image of a Japanese porn star sold out within hours overnight via a telephone hotline. Taiwan’s EasyCard Corp. said on its website that it sold its full run of 30,000 card sets by 4:18am on 1 September 2015.

The stored value cards also used for convenience store purchases feature images of Yui Hatano, a 27-year-old Japanese woman. Hatano was recently ranked the No. 9 porn star in Asia, according to an erotic video website. She says that she likes Taiwan and wants to help the card company’s charity donation scheme as some of money raised by the sale of the cards will be contributed as charity.

These cards featured two poses of Hatano, “demons” and “angels”. The “demons” version shows her dressed in black and shooting a sultry gaze at the camera and the “angels” cards shows her smiling in a white dress.

Critics, including parents and politicians campaigned against the card saying the images disrespect women. Many stores declined to sell them, and the company ended up offering them via telephone hotline only.
