By Michael Deacon. It was , and, aged 23, I was reviews editor for a new weekly magazine for men. The magazine was called Zoo, and, almost a decade on, it remains the subject of protests, although less for its depiction of remote tribes than for its depiction of women. Looking back now on my three years at Zoo, I wonder what we thought we were doing. But not in relation to the topless photos.

Anti-violence campaigners condemned the suggestion as “inexcusable” and “truly stomach churning”. Zoo’s Ask Danny column featured a year-old Manchester man who wrote in as he was unable to get over a break-up with his ex-girlfriend. The man was advised in the year-old actor’s column to go on the “rampage” with the boys or: “Cut your ex’s face, and then no one will want her”.
The magazine said it condemned violence against women, as did Dyer, and an internal inquiry has been launched. A statement issued on behalf of Zoo magazine said: “Due to an extremely regrettable production error, an inappropriate and indefensible response to a letter has appeared in this week’s issue. She said she doubted that people like Katie Piper, who was left with significant scarring after acid was thrown in her face, would find the “joke” amusing.

One in eight young men believe it is OK to hit their girlfriend if she is nagging. Holly Dustin, manager of the End Violence Against Women coalition, described the comment as “truly stomach-churning”.
