Here we go again. It seems every month someone apologizes for saying something outrageous.
Spanish retailer Mango regrets selling ‘Slave Style’ jewelry on its French website. The retailer advertised a gold necklace and two bracelets described as ‘Esclave’, meaning ‘Slave’ in French.
The backlash occurred when a Change.org petition entitled ‘Slavery Is Not Fashion’ asked Mango to remove the descriptor. The Spanish retailer explained on its official Twitter account that it was a “translation error” and the items have now been re-labeled.
According to the Business Insider, one woman on Twitter was outraged. “Stop your lies! We all know that a translation error would be fixed well before products hit the shelves.”
What do you think about this controversy? Are you as upset as we are?
