Gap is under fire for sending out a controversial email to their UK customers.
Users on Twitter noted the advert was sexist as it featured a girl with the caption “the social butterfly” and a boy with the caption “the little scholar.” People argued that the ad encouraged gender stereotypes.

OK, it’s sexist, but surely the campaign was doomed from the start – that is not how you spell Einstein!https://t.co/eythoI4WAQ

Oh, and we forgot to mention that Gap misspelled Einstein’s last name on the shirt. Good one, Gap.
