SAN DIEGO – An Old Navy tweet announcing the beginning of its newest sale attracted some negative feedback over the weekend.
The clothing store’s #ThankYouEvent featured an interracial couple and their child posing.
One Twitter user said, “That’s horrible what is wrong with you? Boycotting Old Navy not that I wore that crap before.”
Old Navy quickly responded to the tweet:
The user then said, “Take a guess. Your clothes are crap quality and now you’re promoting miscegenation. Disgusting!”
Another Twitter user said, “My family and I will never step into an @OldNavy store again. This miscegenation junk is rammed down our throats from every direction.”
Many other replies were supportive:
“Hey Old Navy, my family and I thank you for the diversity in this ad! #LoveWins, no matter the color,” a user posted to Twitter.AlertMe
