The biggest French retailer on Tuesday revoked his plans to release a sports hijab in the country after politicians threatened to boycott the company and pressure on social media
Decathlon said he stopped his hijab release plans, which are already available in Morocco, after he caused a "stormy debate" and a "wave of threats" against some of the store's employees. The company said it has received hundreds of calls and emails that complain about the product as well as threats.
Originally, the country plans to release the sport hijab, which covers only the world's hair, saying she wants to "make sport accessible to all women in the world."
