Boots cuts price on controversial £50 Zoella advent calendar

British YouTuber criticised for allegedly price-gouging Christmas calendar

'I am honestly disgusted' Parents are RAGING over Zoella's £50 advent calendar

Zoella has apologised after old tweets resurfaced of her making fun of gay men.

The first deleted post from 2010 reads: 'I find it amusing when gay men spit... it's like they're trying to be a bit macho but never works...'

"Another post - also deleted - read: "'Why are these clothes so expensive?' because they're designer you tramp, that there in your hand is a dress worth over £2000.

An unidentified woman in another post was told she should "keep her legs shut".

Zoella explained that she felt "just as let down" as her fans, before reasserting that the price is set by the retailer, not her.

Yep, there's only twelve days in this advent calendar, not even 25.

Zoella has yet to address the backlash against her.

We take a look at the hottest babes to take part in the famous X Factor.

But the damage was already done for many reviewers on the Boots website. I love the product, I'm all about the creativity, I'm all about getting it from a design to a product.

Another even revealed how they would be taking the advent calendar back, with one parent warning others: "I can not believe what little you get for £50 in this!"

Youtube star Zoella has been criticized over an advent calendar which costs £50 and only has 12 doors.

However, the product - which is being sold in Boots UK - has a price tag of £50.00, which has caused fury among parents who can't afford it.

"We will be offering the product at half price during our Christmas promotion, where the calendar will be on sale for £25 from Thursday November 16".

'The Zoella lifestyle advent calendar is full of 12 exclusive treats which are all clearly listed on boots.com and can not be purchased separately'.

Daily Star Online has contacted a rep for Zoella for comment.

Miss Sugg launched a fashion and beauty vlog in 2009 and now has more than 11 million subscribers, while her book Girl Online became the fastest selling debut novel ever when it was released in 2014.
