On Thursday, September 12th, on of electronic dance music's largest record labels, Spinnin' Records had posted the following image to its Facebook and Twitter social media profiles which had shown a stove/DJ set up with the quote “Pioneer finally developed a CD-J for women.”
Within minutes, people including many artists and celebrities backlashed at the sexism displayed by Spinnin' Records. One of the main artists who displayed their lack of enthusiasm for Spinnin's posts comes from the women of The Jane Doze.

On Friday, September 13th Spinnin' Records posted the following “apology” to their Facebook.
The media coverage didn't end there and neither did the negative comments about the post, so on Saturday September 14th, Spinnin' Records released another comment to their Facebook page apologizing for unintentionally offending anyone.
The post has now been removed from their Facebook page, but what are your thoughts on this issue? Harmless joke? Or sexist record label not giving women a fair representation in the world of EDM?
