A nuclear power station in Czech Republic got a toxic reaction from the public after it decided to use a swimsuit contest to hire interns.
The post, which has since been deleted, said the woman with the greatest number of likes would be titled “Miss Energy 2017” and get a two-week internship.
But many Facebook users scrutinized the station, commenting on how the post was “unprofessional” and “distasteful,” CNN reported.
"The purpose of the competition was to promote technical education," the post read. "But if the original vision raised doubts or concerns, we are very sorry."
