If there’s one thing people want to do in peace, er, that might just be shop. High end retailer Land’s End discovered just that after it dumbly decided to feature Gloria Steinem in its Spring catalog, resulting, in utter backlash. In the Spring catalog, Steinem discusses various things (minus her abortion views, etc). But that still upset customers.
We understand that some of our customers were offended,” the company said in a statement. “We thought it was a good idea and we heard from our customers that, for different reasons, it wasn’t. For that, we sincerely apologize.”
Land’s End has since scrubbed all mention of Steinem from its website, however, the backlash isn’t quite over yet.
