Benetton is forced to apologise after using ‘girls not allowed’ to promote its children’s clothes

Benetton is well known for its eccentric advertising

Clothing brand United Colors of Benetton has been forced to apologise after its latest childrenswear campaign was labelled  as sexist.

The Italian label posted an image of three boys modelling pieces from the SS17 collection on Instagram, along with the caption: 'Sorry ladies. Girls not allowed!'

It prompted fierce criticism from parents and gender neutral campaigners who say it encourages gender stereotypes and excludes girls from wearing Benetton's clothes.

Following the online backlash, the brand was forced to apologise via a comment on its Instagram page, saying that they were 'very sorry' for 'unintentionally offending' their customers.

They insisted the post was meant to be 'playful' and apologised for 'striking the wrong chord' with their audience.

You can't make this stuff up.

Liberal idiots do not want to admit that there are differences between girls and boys.
