Insensitive: Online retailer BuyDefinition said it was a mistake to sell the “Belsen Was A Gas” parka jacket by Australian label Evil Twin
Online outcry: BuyDefinition has now given the garment a new name and apologised, saying they were selling the item “for its style rather than its name”
Controversial: The name is believed to refer to a 1978 Sex Pistols song, later disowned by singer John Lydon
