Girls Gone Wild Bankrupt: Best Reactions to Possible End of Pervy Videos

Good riddance Joe Francis! (Photo: Getty Images)Girls Gone Wild, the purveyor of disgusting videos of young women taking off their clothes (sometimes willingly, sometimes not so willingly) has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Someone pop the champagne because we’re ready to celebrate the demise of this misogynist regime! And we will be partying with our tops ON.

Though the company says they will continue to distribute videos that might be difficult. Not only are they totally broke—they are $16 million dollars in debt. Ha!

And we’re not the only ones who are happy to see Girls Gone Wild go.

Cord Jefferson, at Gawker, writes, “after 16 godawful, Jagermeister-fueled years, the Girls Gone Wild amateur porn franchise has filed for bankruptcy . . . If we’re lucky, perhaps also gone for good from the public eye is [founder] Joe Francis, a predatory, violent misogynist who once threateningly pinned a female reporter down onto a car and was constantly getting sued when he wasn't being arrested . . . Bye, Joe, hope to see you never.”

There were also a number of satisfied responses on Twitter:
