US clothing retailer Gap has apologized Monday, May 14, 2018, for selling T-shirts with what it says was an "erroneous" map of China.
USA clothing retailer Gap apologised late Monday for selling T-shirts with an "incorrect" map of China, after it became the latest among foreign companies that China has taken offence with in relation to its territorial claims. The fashion retailer has also pulled the product off its shelves in China and destroyed the shirts, a statement on its Weibo read.
The company took action after photos began circulating on Chinese social media of a T-shirt showing a map that didn't include Taiwan, a self-ruled island that Beijing regards as Chinese territory.
"We are truly sorry about this unintentional mistake", the company said.
It also added that it would implement more rigorous reviews to ensure the same thing would not happen again.
