South China Sea islands and south Tibet were also ommitted

Gap has apologised for a T-shirt that featured a map of China without territories such as Taiwan.

According to the BBC, US clothing brand Gap has apologies after selling T-shirts that showed an “incorrect map” of China.

On the design, territories that China claims to be theirs were omitted. Taiwan, islands in the South China Sea and south Tibet were all missing.

Hundreds of complaints flooded Weibo after an image of the T-shirt went viral.

In response, Gap said it would implement “rigorous reviews” to prevent repeating the incident and that it respects China’s “sovereignty”. The company also said it “sincerely apologised for this unintentional error”.
