Anthropologie, a store that sells women's clothing and other products, is getting pummeled on social media after posting a video of a man dancing around in dresses and heels.
"Twirl to the link in bio to shop bold, beautiful dresses for every solo," an Instagram post declared. The video features a man sporting several different outfits, including a pair of jeans and some dresses.
While comments are apparently disabled on the post, people have simply vented their displeasure by leaving comments on other Anthropologie Instagram posts.
"Of all the amazing women out there - and especially so close to Mother's Day - why couldn't you find a woman out there to showcase a dress? So done being erased. After thousands of years in the backseat, we are now fighting AGAIN for visibility. Women have NOT arrived," one person commented.
"You are leaving the post up despite the fact that you had to turn comments off because you know how insulted the majority of your consumers are?!! So much for women's rights and female spaces, huh? Anthro agrees it's a man's world and they are 100% on board. Message received loud and clear," another person wrote.
"Buying your clothing of course (sarcasm) since seeing what women's clothes look like on a man really helps me compare myself to what I'd look like in them," another commenter declared.
"Pathetic to turn off comments. Way to silence the voices of the actual women who shop and wear your clothes. Hope that dude and his friends will come shop because I have a feeling you just lost more customers than you gained with this one," someone wrote on a different post.
Anthropologie posted the controversial video despite the fact that Anheuser-Busch has been facing intense consumer backlash for enlisting transgender figure Dylan Mulvaney to advertise Bud Light beer.
