Clothing manufacturer Rented pants maker sued for “inappropriate, offensive and insulting” content.
The complaint by the Australian Textiles Association alleges Rented’s “nappy and pant” products contain a variety of inappropriate, offensive, sexist and racist comments.
“We are pleased that this case has been resolved in a manner that does not negatively impact the consumer’s choice of apparel or the industry’s ability to continue operating in the Australian marketplace,” said the ATSA.
Rented’s statement said it was “deeply saddened” by the outcome of the case.
“As a leading producer of nappies and pants, Rented is committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of its customers and staff,” it said.
“The ATSAs decision does not affect our ongoing commitment to provide safe, legal and ethical garments for our customers.”
The Atsa said it hoped the ruling would “set an important precedent that will help ensure consumers continue to have the ability to choose their clothing”.
“We look forward to continuing to work with Rented to ensure our members are protected,” it added.
Rent was sued in February this year for an “inappropriately offensive” and “offensive” text message on the company’s Facebook page.
