IKEA forced to speak out after woman caught masturbating in one of its stores

IKEA has been forced to apologise after a “pornographic” video emerged of a woman pleasuring herself on one of their couches online.

The unidentified woman reportedly hopped from sofas to beds around a store in China pleasuring herself while wearing an unbuttoned white shirt.

As soon as IKEA became aware of the video, they alerted authorities and posted a statement to China’s popular social media platform, Weibo:

We resolutely oppose and condemn this kind of behaviour, and immediately reported it to the police in the city of the suspected store.

The Swedish furniture brand said they would take “even more careful security and public cleanliness measures” and then encouraged shoppers to “browse stores in an orderly and civilised way”.

It is not known when the video was filmed, but it is believed to be before the coronavirus global pandemic hit as no one can be seen wearing masks in the background.

Chinese authorities have since removed copies of the pornographic video from Weibo.

The news of the video spread quickly on social media, as many jumped in with their thoughts:

Then the jokes started...

It’s worth repeating: please don’t masturbate in IKEA stores.
