EXCLUSIVE UPDATE: Old Navy Responds To BroadwayWorld On T-Shirt Controversy
As reported on BroadwayWorld, social media users angrily reacted yesterday to the designs of two shirts marketed for children and infants, being sold by the clothing company, Old Navy.
BroadwayWorld has just received this statement from Old Navy:
"At Old Navy we take our responsibility to our customers seriously. We would never intentionally offend anyone, and we are sorry if that has been the case. Our toddler tees come in a variety of designs including tees that feature ballerinas, unicorns, trucks and dinosaurs and include phrases like, 'Free Spirit.' They are meant to appeal to a wide range of aspirations. With this particular tee, as a result of customer feedback, we have decided to discontinue the design and will work to remove the item from our stores." - Debbie Felix, Old Navy spokesperson
