Recently, luxury brands Fan Sizhe, Comchi and Dior have successively broken out negative news, suspected of disrespecting Chinas sovereignty and listing Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macao as countries, which has aroused heated discussion. As brand spokespersons, Yang Wei, Liu Wen and Ren Jialun have issued statements announcing the termination of their respective luxury brands.
On the evening of the 10th, some netizens found that Beijing and Shanghai, which are Chinese cities, correspond to China (China), but Hong Kong and Macao correspond to Hongkong (Hong Kong) and Macao (Macao).
Shortly after the fermentation of the incident, Versace quickly issued an apology letter on the official microblog at 2:12 a.m. saying: Recently, we found that some consumers on the Internet have discussed one of our T-shirts. We apologize for the controversy. Our incorrect design led to the incorrect use of national names in some cities, and the T-shirt was removed and destroyed on July 24 from all official channels of Versace. This is our companys negligence, and we apologize for the impact. Fan Sizhe reiterated that we love China and resolutely respect Chinas territorial and national sovereignty.
