Must not suggest that women have breasts
Newcomer "Doughnut Time" has tried to cover its social media tracks after an outrage at staff uniforms with strategically placed doughnuts.
Doughnut Time founder Damian Griffiths said the T-shirts with doughnuts printed strategically over the breasts had been dumped from its stores four months ago, but on Saturday it wiped them from social media accounts.
"Any imagery that was on our social media accounts and website has been removed based on the feedback from the community which we value greatly," Mr Griffiths said in a statement.
"We apologise to any of our current and past customers who may have taken offence to these T-shirts," he said.
The sprinkle of criticism from Collective Shout - a prominent campaigning movement against the objectification of women and sexualisation of girls - tarnished the company's free doughnut giveaway on Saturday at its store in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy.
