A mannequin in a store window is sparking outrage, because of its bony, rail-thin appearance.

The mannequin was spotted in the window of popular UK clothing store, Whistles, by a passerby who snapped a photo and shared it on Instagram

 

 

The Whistles clothing store issued a statement apologizing for the emaciated mannequin. 

"We are sorry for any unintentional offence caused by this mannequin," the apology stated. "The headless mannequins are a stylised tool for visual merchandising and are not a direct representation of the average female form. It is made in order for clothing to be carefully slipped on and off."

Harris Faulkner said on "Outnumbered" today that she doesn't like to see mannequins like this. 

"I'm raising girls and I don't like to see this," she said. "I don't like to see us to have emaciated anything."

"I don't really believe what they're saying that it's easier for them to get the clothes on and off," Andrea Tantaros added.
