Office is selling Me Too shoes as work place attire and some people think its disgusting
Facebook user Ingrid Stone noticed that fashion retailer Office was selling shoes labelled as Me Too.
The shoe brand seemed to have inadvertently named a number of their heels after the anti-sexual assault movement, backed by millions around the world.
Is it just me or is the Me Too name of these shoes from Office a tad awful? wrote Ingrid on her page.
The British shoe shop was called out by other shoppers who discovered a range of stilettos called Me Too on the companys website.
They are available in various shades and are made of leather and suede, costing £85.
Ingrids followers expressed the same outrage at the shoes, calling it disgusting and dreadful.
One user wrote: This is beyond bad, bad taste and (is) commercially capitalising on something that should not be commercially capitalised upon and more.
One person called up the brand to ask why the shoes have been named after the insensitive topic.
Just called customer services, she wrote. Finally got through to speak to someone directly to register my extreme disquiet. Its a shocker this one. Should carry a trigger warning.
The shoes are still available for sale with the same description. It is unclear whether the shoes predate the movement nor if it was done inadvertently.
We have contacted Office for comment and will update the article if they reply.
The news comes after we previously reported the #MeToo movement has caused a shift in attitude towards sexual assault.
Research by gender equality organisation the Fawcett Society found that over half of young people between 18-34 say they are now more likely to speak up against sexual harassment, including 58% of young men.
