The United Nations Just Fired A Greek Princess From Her Ambassador Role
Wonder Woman's role as an honorary UN ambassador for women's issues lasted less than two months.
Less than two months after she was named as an honorary ambassador for women's issues, Diana, Princess of Themyscira, will be leaving her role, the UN said.
It's a swift turnaround from a campaign launch that saw Lynda Carter and Gal Gadot, two women who've portrayed her on screen, coming together to celebrate.
Wonder Woman specifically was meant to embody the Sustainable Development Goal of empowering women and girls.
But not everyone was on board with the idea of a fictional character representing real issues that women have to go through.
And a petition started by staffers concerned with her sexualized nature got tens of thousands of signatures.
Which leads to the news that Diana will be forced out of her ambassadorship, so soon after getting lassoed into the post. But that's all according to plan, according to the UN.
The Themyscarian Embassy in DC did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the controversy from BuzzFeed News.
