Buzz on La Redoute website
French fashion chain La Redoute was left red faced today after accidentally publishing a photo of a naked man in an advert for children’s clothing.
The offending image was posted on the retailer’s website and featured four children playing on a beach – with a nudist bather in the sea behind them.
The fully naked man escaped the notice of the photo’s editor, but eagle eyed Twitter users were quick to spot the X-rated mishap.
‘La Redoute’ began to trend on the social networking site with both French and English users expressing views.
La Redoute has been very quick to respond to the buzz. The immediate withdrawal of the picture led to an internal investigation. When contacted, La Redoute said that it was an internal error.
So a statement had removed any malicious act suspected by some customers on Facebook and Twitter, who thought to see in the image the result of a deliberate act. But difficult to find out more. La Redoute and said that “they do not have plans to communicate more on this subject and on the results of the internal investigation in particular.”
I think the photo’s editor have been fired but this story has been funny though. Thank you very much La Redoute, but I would really like to know more about this guy who got naked picture of him on his professional drive! Where this picture originally comes from? How this mistake culd have been done? This story has cased a lot of buzz but what is the real story? Hoepfully, La Redoute do not have a “peadophile” working on its premises.
