A bar in northern Spain took out an ad for a waitress who had "big breasts, a desire to work and some experience." 

A bar in northern Spain irritated a lot of people this week when it took out a job ad looking for a waitress and specified that applicants must be personable, experienced, and in possession of a large pair of breasts.

According to The Local, the ad came out Sunday on a Spanish job search website under the headline “Looking for a barmaid to attract attention.”

In the ad, the bar specified that there was an opening for a young, pretty woman and described the perfect candidate as a, "Young girl for a small bar who has a good appearance and is attention grabbing. Must have big breasts, a desire to work and some experience."

The website was reportedly hit with a number of complaints as the ad went viral and sparked accusations of sexism. The bar did not list its name, and the identity of the establishment in question is still unknown.

The ad was reportedly removed from the site within 24 hours after the site received a number of complaints, but the website did say that 13 people had submitted applications for the job in that time.
