A popular advent calendar created by the cosmetic brand Chanel caught online attention, after a number of reviewers vented their anger that the gift hamper included a TikTok toy.
Chanel has since issued an apology in a series of tweets, assuring customers that no cross product lines were planned.
A spokesperson for the brand said: “The Chanel collection of Christmases is a well-known advertising technique on different platforms and it has always been an innocent and honest gift-giving concept with the main goal to communicate a message of love.”
