London, December 05 (ANI): A remote control, which blasts out orders to women, has come under fire for its sexist undertone.

The Control Your Woman remote can voice orders like "get me a beer."

Moreover, it has functions that demand and control aspects like cleaning, spending and sex.

The 8-pound gadget is being sold by Debenhams as a novelty gift for Christmas.

David Philpot, a manager at the st Giles Trust Domestic abuse Programme, has slammed the item after he saw it at his local Debenhams, in Ashford, Kent.

"It is totally inappropriate," the Daily Star quoted him as saying.

Even though it has been removed from its online store after complaints, Debenhams said the item would be available in markets nationwide. (ANI)
