UK supermarket Waitress has been forced to apologise after shoppers accused them of being ‘racist ’for labelling a dark chocolate Easter duckling ‘ugly’.

The chocolate was one of three options in a range, with a milk chocolate duckling being described as ‘crispy’ whole the white chocolate version was described as ‘fluffy.’

However, a ‘small number’ of customers took offence to the dark chocolate one being described as ‘ugly’ and promoted to the supermarket to pull the item from the shelves and redesign its packaging.

One Twitter user responded saying “Can the world get a grip now please?”

Another added: “Have people completely lost the plot?”

The product has now been put back on the shelves with no description on the box.
