ASOS forced to apologise to celebrity after calling her a ‘man’

by

Jodie Marsh has been given an apology by online fashion label ASOS after they called her a ‘man’.

The original tweet showed a snap of Jodie competing in a bodybuilding competition in response to a male customer who messaged saying, “Would you mind employing a model who’s built like a man or anyone who actually lifts can buy clothes that fit from you?”

ASOS replied with the picture and said, “This do?”

Taking to her social networking account, the Celebrity Big Brother star fumed, “So @ASOS are saying I look like a man. I am utterly horrified at this comment. Totally unacceptable from such a large company. BULLIES!”

“Check my last RT to see what bullies @ASOS are! Talk about being slapped in the face. This is disgusting and I am horrified. I’m gobsmacked,” she said.

The bosses at ASOS have apologised to Jodie and said their comment was a “genuine mistake”.

“The picture of Jodie Marsh was posted today was a genuine mistake and we’re deeply sorry. We’ve apologised personally to Jodie and made a plan with her to make this right,” they said.

“It is never our intention to hurt, embarrass or upset anyone and promoting positive body-image is something that’s very important to us. Again, we would like to apologise to Jodie and anyone else who was offended by this tweet and we’ll do our best to make sure something like this doesn’t happen again,” they added.

We’d be saying sorry too if we were them! Have you seen her muscles?!
