American company Johnson & Johnson has responded to criticisms about Sulli and Goo Hara's Lolita-themed photo. The image had received backlash and was tagged as inappropriate as the product is for babies.
The 22-year-old singer posted a photo of herself and Hara on Instagram in a large pink Johnson's baby oil t-shirt. She wrote: "Friendship photo with Hara. Hara that I love."
Following the backlash, she deleted the image. She wrote: "Let's stop misunderstanding. Good night."
Johnson & Johnson released a statement following the controversy. The post read: "Thank you very much for reaching out to us with your concerns. We at Johnson's do not condone the objectification of any persons, and appreciate your flagging this misrepresentation of our brand. Please know that we do not take any such incidents lightly and have flagged this issue to our management teams for review and action. Once again, we appreciate your support in reporting the issue, and helping us maintain the values we hold dear."
