Online retailer ASOS Slammed Over Controversial Product


Share this article


Online retailer ASOS has come under fire for glamorising suicide.

A belt like latex choker has been deemed 'offensive' and 'insensitive' by customers.

The accessory named the 'Hanger Latex Flame Choker', was modeled by a young girl with her eyes closed and her head tilted to the side.

In response to the complaints the product has been removed from the online retailer’s site.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">We&#39;re sorry this product has offended you - this wasn&#39;t our intention! The choker has now been removed from the site.</p>&mdash; ASOS Here to Help (@ASOS_HeretoHelp) <a href="https://twitter.com/ASOS_HeretoHelp/status/953993509492723712?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">January 18, 2018</a></blockquote>
