The National Trust has removed hats that sparked outrage on social media following a ‘sexist’ message printed on the front.
The hats, which stated ‘Future Footballers Wife’, were being sold in the gift shop at Tatton Park, Cheshire.
Laura Goss, posted to the Trust’s twitter page to say: “This stupid hat is for sale at Tatton Park. Your young female visitors deserve better merch (+ better grammar).”
Other Twitter users shared their disgust, one said: “I too am a disappointed National Trust member. I do hope it’s removed from Tatton Park and any other shop. Please confirm
Another said: “An appalling lack of judgement . Perhaps you need to check the shops at all national trust properties and tweet the outcome of your checks?”
The National Trust responded by saying: “Tatton Park is entirely managed by Cheshire East Council and this product isn’t on sale at our places.
“We’ve shared this feedback with Cheshire East Council and they have removed this product from sale.
