Versace Apologizes After T-Shirts Spark Criticism in China



Versace apologized in China for selling T-shirts that it said attached incorrect country names to cities.
They were being attacked on social media for challenging China's territorial integrity.
The item mislabeled Hong Kong and Macao as countries. 
The apology came after a Chinese actress cut her ties with the company.
Versace said the shirts had been removed from all sales channels and destroyed.
