Spanish fashion retailer Mango is in hot water after it posted a new necklace on its website, describing it as "slave style". Several French actresses launched an online petition, titled "Slavery is not fashion!", which has received more than 5,000 signatures.

Mango later deleted the controversial descriptions, but supporters are demanding a formal apology, and that the necklace be removed entirely.
