Thirty-seven percent of the respondents to a Matichon online survey to gauge public opinions about the controversial billboards of Thammasat University’s Cheerleader Club support the billboards, said they are great and amount to “thinking out of the box”.

27 percent of the respondents disagreed, saying they are inappropriate while 36 percent said the billboards convey wrong message.

The billboards show headshots revealing bare shoulders of members of the university’s former cheerleader team.

Photos of the billboards posted and went viral on the social media have sparked heated debates among netizens and received mixed reactions from the public.

However, the cheerleader club defended that the photos were not produced in a provocative fashion but were intended as a material to promote self confidence among young people regardless of their appearances.
