Indonesian sportswear company apologizes for sexist label

Salvo

Indonesian sportswear company Salvo Sports is receiving heavy criticism for a controversial label on one of its products.

On the shirts for an Indonesian soccer team, the company printed these washing instructions: “Give this jersey to your woman. It’s her job.”

On Sunday, which happened to be International Women’s Day, the company issued an apology on its Twitter page, claiming the intent was that men should learn from women how to properly take care of clothing.
