According to This Gap Kids Ad, Girls Are Social Butterflies and Boys Are Little Scholars
It's been just a few months since Gap came under fire for one of its kid clothes ads, but this time around, people seem to be even more outraged by a suggestion Gap has made. In a Gap UK ad featuring a young girl and boy, the girl is labeled a "Social Butterfly" dressed in a preppy outfit and a cat-ear headband while the boy is pictured in an Albert Einstein graphic tee and is labeled a "Little Scholar."
Besides the fact that the ad appears sexist, suggesting that little boys are scholars while girls are the chatty ones in class who make all of the friends, the graphic tee actually spells "Einstein" wrong, switching around the "I" and "E." Needless to say, Twitter users have been openly sharing their opinions of the ad since its email release last weekend.
