Parents slam Sainsbury's for selling #offensive' t-shirt for girls

‘What message is this sending to society?’ Angry parents slam Sainsbury’s for selling an ‘utterly offensive strip club sign’ t-shirt for girls as young as seven

  • Sainsbury’s has been slammed for selling ‘utterly offensive’ top for young girls 
  • Black t-shirt, £15, featured pink neon sign logo which read: ‘GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS’ 
  • One parent raged it’s what you see ‘outside of strip clubs to portray seedy areas’ 

Angry parents have slammed Sainsbury’s for selling an ‘utterly offensive’ t-shirt for girls as young as seven which has obvious connotations to strip clubs.

The £15 black top, which has since been removed from sale following the backlash, featured a pink neon sign logo across the chest which read ‘GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS’ – similar to signs commonly seen in the red light district. 

And it wasn’t long before outraged mums took to the review section of the supermarket’s website, with one writing: ‘It’s no wonder some men objectify women and girls when Sainsbury’s sell t-shirts for young girls age 7-13 years, picturing a pink neon “girls girls girls” sign.

‘It’s the kind you see in films outside of strip clubs to portray a seedy area of a city. What message is this sending to society? Not cool Sainsbury’s!’

A second, who branded it a disgrace, commented: ‘Are you seriously selling this?’

‘The design has obvious associations. And to put it on a top for 7-13 year old girls?!! It is utterly offensive.’ 

The product description online read: ‘Fresh from the ONLY Kids collection, this funky black t-shirt is perfect for little trendsetters.

‘With a crew neck and short sleeves, it comes in pure organic cotton, has a cool neon pink ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ graphic and is perfect teamed with classic jeans.’ 

One person took to Twitter and penned: ‘Is it just me who thinks this kids T-shirt currently available in Sainsbury’s is highly inappropriate?’ (pictured)

But few agreed that the inappropriate garment was ‘perfect for little trendsetters.’

‘Is it just me who thinks this kids T-shirt currently available in Sainsbury’s is highly inappropriate? A sign usually seen outside strip clubs!’ wrote one on Twitter, while a second simply commented: ‘Ewww!’

A Sainsbury’s spokesperson told FEMAIL: ‘We have listened to the concerns some customers have shared with us and removed the design from sale. We’re sorry for any offence this may have caused.’ 

Metal band Motley Crüe released single ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ in 1987, which featured references to sex clubs, and was even filmed at The Seventh Veil strip club on the Sunset Strip.
