British supermarket has an 'inflatable g*y best friend' in its online store

Sometimes "gay" is a good word and sometimes it is bad.  It's hard to predict

Just a day after Tesco was criticised for selling a 'Psycho Ward' costume, an 'inflatable gay best friend' has been discovered in its online store, with the word gay asterisked out.

Twitter users have reacted with fury at the censorship, questioning why the word has been deemed offensive.

The description for the product reads: 'Although not much can be said for his own attire, your Inflatable g*y Best Friend is ready to give you fashion advice, tell you if your bum looks big and b**ch about everyone who doesn't wear Jimmy Choo's.'

A Tesco spokesperson said: 'This product was uploaded to the website by a third party seller but was removed from sale immediately because we found it offensive.
