Seven year old slams Tesco over sexist toy

A seven-year old girl has thrown some serious shade at Tesco for its gender-inspired toy range.

Maggie was unimpressed when she came across a Marvel alarm clock touted as a gift for boys, saying to her mother, ""Well that's wrong! Anybody can like superheroes, they're being stupid aren't they?"

We couldn't agree more - and apparently neither could Maggie's mum, because she took a picture of her daughter next to the clock, which has since gone viral on Twitter.

Social media users were predictably up in arms over the photo, with many voicing their support for Maggie and their distaste for Tesco:

Perhaps Tesco learnt a lesson or two from Lego, who was also slammed by a seven-year old for featuring sexist toys, because it’s since removed the alarm clock from shelves.

"This alarm clock would make a great gift for both girls and boys. The sign has been removed and we're sorry if it caused any confusion," a Tesco spokesperson told BuzzFeed.
