Dove apologized for a GIF promoting body wash that was posted Friday to the brand's Facebook page. It was taken down Saturday.

A new advertisement for Dove is sparking up controversy on social media after the company started touting its body positive soap bottles.

As part of its “Real Beauty” campaign, Dove has unveiled six differently shaped bottles of body wash, meant to evoke all the various “shapes and sizes that combine to make every woman their very own limited edition.”

Twitter users have reacted by asking questions or with judgmental commentary.

So far, the bottles have been produced for customers in the United Kingdom.
