Twinings have publicly aired their disapproval about featuring in *that* teabag photo posted by Dealz

*Twinings casually pull all of their products from the shelves of Dealz*

YESTERDAY, WE ALL discovered what a strange online presence Dealz has.

As of late, the budget retailer has been sharing photos and videos to their Facebook account of Elf on the Shelf dolls getting up to some fairly crude stuff.

You can have a look at the other ones here, if you so wish.

Now British tea company Twinings have taken to Twitter to distance themselves from the viral social media posts.

Did somebody complain? Did a loyal Twinings customer see this Elf on the Shelf photo on Facebook and get so annoyed that they contacted their favourite tea company to make their disappointment known? Did their monocle fall into their cup of tea?

Frankly, I didn’t even notice it was Twinings until they posted this tweet.

Well, there you have it. An elf teabagging a Barbie doll is not reflective of Twinings’ brand values. Glad they cleared that one up.

Dealz responded on Facebook shortly after, by posting a new photograph sans Twinings.

This could only happen in 2017.
