Gap Inc has apologised for selling a shirt with an incorrect map of China after photos of the shirt found in an outlet store in Canada made the rounds online.
Marriott and Gap aren't alone in causing offence to China, Delta Air Lines recently issued a public apology for what it described as a "grave mistake" after listing Taiwan and Tibet as independent countries on its website.
US clothing retailer Gap is the latest company to apologize to China for failing to reflect Beijing's territorial claims - on a map shown on a T-shirt for sale in North America. The map also appeared to leave out southern Tibet and the disputed South China Sea, the state-owned Global Times said, adding that it drew hundreds of complaints on China's Weibo microblogging platform.
Most recently, the Chinese Civil Aviation Administration ordered a number of air carriers, including USA airlines, to identify Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau as Chinese regions on their websites.
The government has lodged a protest against a change of its designation to "Taiwan, China" on the website of Air Canada, the country's flag carrier and largest airline, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Tuesday.
In response, Gap said it would implement "rigorous reviews" to prevent repeating the incident and that it respects China's "sovereignty". We've learned a Gap brand T-shirt sold in some overseas markets mistakenly failed to reflect the correct map of China.
The statement continued by saying the company sincerely apologizes for the unintentional error and an internal inspection is being conduct because of the discovery.
The White House in early May called Chinese demands, that over 30 worldwide airlines including a few in the US, remove from their websites any data that might suggest that Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan were not part of China, as being Orwellian nonsense.
"This is Orwellian nonsense and part of a growing trend by the Chinese Communist Party to impose its political views on American citizens and private companies", it said in a statement.
Aside from Taiwan, Chinese troops marched into Tibet in 1950 to bring the region under Beijing's control.
