The high street choclatier Thorntons has sold a homophobic Easter egg.

At their store in Tunbridge Wells shoppers were astounded as a group of young men asked 'You're gay' to be written on an egg and the assistant obliged.

One shopper said: 'I couldn't believe it, you are not allowed to say things like that. Why would they think it appropriate to write that on a gift to someone?

Who knows what upset it could have caused at the other end."

Pinkwire spoke to Thorntons today who apologised for the incident in a statement they said:

" Thortons would never condone homophobic language. We try our best to fulfil our customer's requests for personalised messages on chocolate products, and regret any offence that may have been caused in this instance."
