French fashion company Chanel is facing criticism for a recreational item in its spring-summer collection.
Chanel is selling a wood and resin boomerang embossed with the company's iconic logo for $1,325.
The Twitterverse had a mixed response. Some criticized the pricey product as cultural appropriation, while others thought the controversy was overblown.
Chanel said in a statement to CNN that "Chanel is extremely committed to respecting all cultures, and deeply regrets that some may have felt offended.”
