After criticisms started pouring in, Versaces accepted its mistake and said that they have stopped selling the tops. China has been strict in how foreign brands portray Hong Kong, which is a part of China having some special status and greater autonomy than the mainland of the country. Macau is also not an independent state but rather a special administrative region of China.

The company has also misspelled Brussels into Brusells on this same collection of T-shirts.
