REUS, Spain, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Officials in Reus, Spain, ordered carnival organizers to take down an advertisement featuring an image of a woman's naked breasts.

Mayor Carles Pellicer said he told organizers of the Carnaval de Reus, held the night before the start of Lent, to take down the "sexist" poster because it "does not represent the diverse public" who attend the event, ThinkSpain reported Thursday.

Organizers said the poster was created by Josep Maria Figuerola and Joan Andreu, and chosen from a pool of 14 entries as part of the annual poster design contest.
