Amazon is under fire for retailing baby bodysuits said to contain “pro-pedophile” overtones.
Shoppers discovered a US$18.98 onesie on the e-marketplace with the slogan, “Daddy’s Little F**k Toy.” The piece was described as a “funny baby bodysuit,” but nobody seemed to have the last laugh.
Child sex abuse awareness experts have lambasted the website for letting the insensitive apparel go online. One such critic is Professor Marci Hamilton, the CEO of nonprofit CHILD USA, which strives to protect kids in America from abuse.
Professor Hamilton says she imagines Amazon would have “much better controls” over its products, especially those targeted at children. The disturbing slogan would have set alarm bells ringing, she added.
Upon investigation, The Sun also uncovered another bodysuit that read, “I Just Look Illegal,” which was meant to be a “funny immigration” outfit.
Both apparels have been taken down by Amazon following heavy criticism.
