Henkel Pulls Toilet Freshener That Insulted Ukrainians

German consumer goods company Henkel has decided to pull a toilet freshener out of Ukraine after the country’s nationals said they were offended because the product resembled the Ukrainian national flag. The Bref Duo Stripes’ design included the blue and yellow colors. A TV ad showed the freshener placed under the toilet rim, but the company said the colors carried a totally different meaning. “We are sorry if people feel offended by the design of our new Bref Duo Stripes. The color blue, intended to stand for water and hygiene, and the yellow color for lemon scent are common for this type of products,” Henkel said on Facebook this week.
