“Washing instructions: Give this shirt to a woman. It’s her job,” Salvo Sports printed on the shirts of Indonesian Super League team Pusamania Borneo.
Haha. Haha. Isn’t that funny? Isn’t it hilarious? Here’s another. “Make me a sammich.” Are you out of breath yet?
The instructions rapidly drew criticism on social media.
The company offered an apology on Sunday, International Women’s Day, after being inundated with complaints.
“The message is simply, instead of washing it in the wrong way, you might as well give it to a lady because they are more capable,” Salvo Sports posted on Twitter.
“There is no intention to humiliate women. In contrast [we want to tell the men] learn from women how to take care of clothes,” it said.
Oh, I see, it wasn’t even a joke, it was advice. Give it to a woman because estrogen causes you to know how to do laundry and androgen causes you to be completely baffled by the whole concept.
Happy International Women’s Day to you too.
