Sports Company Under Fire For 'Sexist' Washing Label Reading: 'Give It To Your Woman. It's Her Job'

A sportswear company has come under fire after printing a "sexist" message on its clothing labels.

Indonesian clothing company, Salvo Sports - who are the official kit provider for major football team Pusamania Borneo - printed washing instructions on the inside of their football shirts reading: "Give it to your woman. It's her job."

And people are pretty pissed off.

After being inundated with complaints, the company apologised for the remark - and managed to coincide their public apology with International Women's Day.

It also comes just days after Women in Football launched #SheBelongs, a social media campaign which aims to tackle sexism in the game.

According to a translation by International Business Times, Salvo Sports posted on Twitter: "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."

"There is no intention to humiliate women. In contrast, [men can] learn from women how to take care of clothes."

"Not all men know how to treat their clothes and women have more expertise."

And by the looks of things, it wasn't the response Twitter users were after.

One user, John 'Jack' Daniels tweeted: "What a piss-poor, mealy-mouthed attempt at an apology! Can U guys play football w/ ur foot in your mouth & head up your arse?"

Ouch.
