An Indonesian clothing company has apologized for a clothing tag on a shirt that tells women to clean it because "it's her job."

Salvo Sports printed the sexist instructions on shirts of an Indonesian Super League, team Pusamania Borneo.


Salvo's response on Twitter (translated) read: "The message is simply, instead of washing it in the wrong way, you might as well give it to a lady because they are more capable. There is no intention to humiliate women. In contrast [we want to tell the men] learn from women how to take care of clothes."

While the company apologized for any misinterpretations, Salvo Sports hasn't said if they are recalling the shirts.

This incident comes days after the introduction of the "Women in Football" campaign, which promotes equality in soccer.
