Shopper outraged over ‘sick’ baby ‘hotpants’

A HORRIFIED shopper has accused Primark of "sexualising children" after spotting 'hotpants' in her local store aimed at babies.

The 23-year-old was disgusted to find the denim shorts in Bristol's Broadmead branch, being marketed for children up to three months old.

The customer was so shocked she took a snap of the product on her phone to share on her Snapchat as she could tell another lady was also disgusted.

The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: "I just think they are sick. What on earth were Primark thinking?"

"I just stopped when I saw them and though these cannot be serious - these tiny hotpants are purposely sexualising babies and that is disgusting."

A Primark spokesperson has said: "This assertion is simply untrue. As clearly indicated on the label, the item is a pair of babies' shorts, designed to be age appropriate and comfortable for use with nappies.

"It has, however, come to our attention that an error in a recent batch of the shorts has caused the turn-up to be rolled twice instead of once.

"We have removed this batch from sale so that they can be adjusted to the correct specification.
