Tesco forced to apologise for “disgraceful” ad showing domestic worker being slapped


A tasteless advert showing a housemaid getting slapped has landed Tesco into trouble.

The advert for Tesco Lotus, the retailer’s Thai offshoot, was ridiculed for being insensitive to the topic of domestic violence after showing a worker being slapped for accidentally dropping crisps on a woman.


Tesco was forced to remove the advert after a fierce backlash and apologised for any offence caused.
