Aisling Bea uses sexist article to brilliantly promote local business
The comedian used the coverage as an opportunity to shout-out her favourite vintage stores.
The article, which appeared in The Daily Star, read: "Fans of the BBC programme 'couldn't take their eyes off' Aisling Bea's gaping pink jumpsuit as she appeared on Thursday's show to promote her award winning programme This Way Up."
Bea posted a screenshot of the article to her Instagram page and responded to it in her caption.
"This "article" which will forever more remain online for future generations to look at as part of history was posted about five minutes after we came off air. We went looking for the GIANT reaction to my GAPING OPEN jumpsuit and lads... it was based off ONE tweet. UNO TWEETO. You too can make the news from one tweet."
Aisling then went on to give a shoutout to the designer of the jumpsuit, which wasn't that low cut at all.
"If you did like my GAPING jumpsuit - I bought it for UNDER 30 squid from second hand clothing shop in Edinburgh run by some cool gals @littlebluedoorvintage - they have the BEST names - Aisling and Aine."
The comedian also gave a shout-out to her earrings, which she nabbed in Twisted Vintage in East London. Aisling added that the shop makes new pieces out of old jewelry, and that she's donated to them in the past.
In her post, she added a series of screenshots with details of the small businesses.
She added that her post was meant in a "very light hearted way", and was not meant to be "serious". Bea said that she hoped the journalist was able to get paid out of her "lil gape".
