Groupon Gift Cards The woman was searching for a new Groupon steam mop on Google when she came across one that particularly caught her eye.
The mop which comes in five different colours including purple green and blue is listed for £8.99 and comes with a spray bottle attached to it.
On Google an advert for the mop is listed as “Women’s spray mop with microfibre pads” but when you click the link on Groupon’s website it reads as “Spray mop with two microfibre pads.”
In a now-deleted tweet to the official Groupon Twitter account the woman sarcastically asked whether the online retailer was selling a unisex mop or one that men could use so her husband could also clean the floors.
According to a spokesperson for Groupon: “Groupon does not believe that housework is in any way gender specific.
“Sadly the issue was caused by automation software. The purchase trends for this particular product found that it had been purchased by a large percentage of women and so the automation software added the word Women’s to this particular paid advert.
A spokeswoman for Google added: “We value diversity and respect for others and we strive to avoid offending users so we don’t allow ads or destinations that display shocking content or promote hatred intolerance Cheap Groupon Gift Cards discrimination or violence. When ads breach our policies we take action.”
The advert has now been deleted.
