'I'm Close To Tears Here' - ASOS Slammed For 'Disgusting' Tweet About Model Jodie Marsh

Online retailer ASOS has come under extreme criticism this evening, after referring to model and bodybuilder Jodie Marsh as a man in an ill-advised tweet today.

The incident began when a male customer of the clothing giant sent a tweet to the official @ASOS account asking "Would you mind employing a model who's built like a man so anyone who actually lifts can buy clothes that fit from you?".

The account replied by sending the below response, containing a photo of glamour girl Marsh with the caption 'This do?'.

Marsh was understandably outraged by the public slur, sending a series of tweets outlining her distress at the insult and accusing the company of bullying her.

The comment quickly drew ire from the online community, with commentators calling the act "disgusting", "appalling" and "shocking".

ASOS later apologised for the tweet, saying "you're right, we should never have tweeted that. We never meant to hurt your feelings and we're really sorry".

However, the model has refused to accept the apology.
