La Redoute accidentally includes picture of naked man in children's clothes marketing photos

French fashion chain La Redoute has apologised after it accidentally published a photo online featuring four children in La Redoute summer wear – with a naked man in the background.

The photo has now been removed but led to a huge reaction on Twitter, with ‘La Redoute’ now trending.

The company has apologised on Twitter and its website for the mistake, saying it has been taken down and the fashion chain will keep the public up-to-date with what happened: ‘Nous sommes en train de retirer la photographie, nous nous en excusons et vous tenons au courant.’

Im surprised this wasnt picked up by someone much earlier. Maybe a good way to get a compnay trending and be a bit tongue in cheek.

For someone who has seen it all, I hardly understand the fracas, especially if you consider it’s openly displayed behavior on most European beaches (where I assume the ad was directed for, and forget German beaches were it's rampant nudism) nor was there any sexual engagement of any sorts. In other words it must be a slow day in the media world….
