Parents Buy Kids Clothes Printed With Swear Words Because They Don't Understand English

Parents are snapping up clothing for their kids covered in inappropriate language - because they don't understand what it says.

According to Shanghaiist, the garments have caused a debate after someone took pictures of them in a mall in Luoyang, Henan in China and circulated them online.

Retail assistants apparently also have no idea what the garments say.

The clothing is broadly thought to be against China's Consumer Protection law, which dictates that costumers are 'entitled to be treated with dignity'.

They are allowed by law to return items if they find they contain swear words or vulgar phrases.
