An advertisement from Bloomingdale's holiday catalog has caused a furor on social media where people are accusing the high-end department store of promoting rape.
According to Orlando's Real Radio 104.1, a picture of the ad was posted on Imgur on Nov. 10, and it states: "Spike Your Best Friend's Eggnog When They're Not Looking."
The ad shows a man looking at a woman who is looking in the other direction.
The ad was slammed on Twitter for reportedly promoting rape.
That Bloomingdales ad is horrific. How was that ever approved let alone thought of as a good idea?! Despicable.— Kirby (@oc_11) November 10, 2015
"In reflection of recent feedback, the copy we used in our recent catalog was inappropriate and in poor taste. Bloomingdales' sincerely apologizes for this error in judgment," a Bloomingdale's rep told Tech Insider on Nov. 11.
In response, Jezebel blared the headline: "Bloomingdale's Apologizes for Maybe Encouraging You to Date Rape Your Friend."
