Party City is apologizing for a commercial that called gluten-free people “gross.”

The party store issued a statement on Monday after several people with gluten allergies slammed the company on social media for their commercial, which was for Food Network star Sunny Anderson‘s inflatable snack stadium.

The ad features two people in a room decorated and ready for a Super Bowl party. A large snack table is on display and to the right of it is a single plate of food separated on a stool.

“Those are some gluten-free options,” one woman says in the commercial.

“Do we even know people that are like that?” another woman asked.

“Tina,” the first woman responded.

“Oh, gross, yeah,” the second woman said.

Anderson shared Party City’s full apology on her Instagram on Monday, writing in the caption, “Please read I’d like to thank @partycity for handling this swiftly and with care.”

The company issued the following statement, “Party City values its customers above all else, and we take your feedback extremely seriously. We recognize that we made an error in judgment by running the recent Big Game commercial, which was insensitive to people with food allergies.”

It continued, “We have removed the commercial from our website and all other channels, and sincerely apologize for any offense this may have caused.”

“We’d also like to clarify that Sunny Anderson was not involved in the creation of this commercial in any way, and we apologize for any offense it has caused with her audience and fans. We will also be reviewing our internal vetting process on all advertising content to avoid any future issues. In addition, Party City will be making a donation in support of Celiac Disease research.”

Fans have been waiting for a new album from Christina Aguilera for years, and now, the 37-year-old pop star promises, “It’s coming, bitches.”

On Monday night, Aguilera let her fans know that new music was imminent in a message on her Instagram Story.

The news came attached to a popular meme that showed the “Come on Over (All I Want Is You)” singer’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, flanked with a Post-It note asking, “Dear Christina Aguilera, Where the f— is the new album??”

Aguilera hasn’t released a new studio album since 2012’s Lotus. That record, her seventh, spawned the singles “Your Body” and “Just a Fool” — the latter a duet with Blake SheltonLotus peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard 2000, and went on to become one of Aguilera’s lowest-selling records.

Though she hasn’t put out a full album, there have been singles. In 2013, she guested on Pitbull’s “Feel This Moment,” Mexican singer Alejandro Fernández’s cover of “Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti,” and A Great Big Worlds “Say Something.” That same year, she recorded “We Remain” for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack.

She also appeared on a remixed version of Lady Gaga’s 2014 single “Do What U Want.”

In June 2016, Aguilera released “Change” — a song dedicated to the late Christina Grimmie and the victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting. Two months later, she dropped a disco song called “Telepathy” for the soundtrack of Netflix’s The Get Down.

Aguilera last performed at the 2017 American Music Awards in November, paying tribute to Whitney Houston and the 25-year anniversary of the The Bodyguard soundtrack with powerful renditions of  “I Will Always Love You,” “I Have Nothing,” “Run to You,” and “I’m Every Woman.”

Following her performance, Aguilera took to Twitter with a video message thanking the AMAs and the Houston family “for making a little girl’s dream come true. I’ve had the time of my life.”

“I hope I did you proud Whitney,” she added. “Love you forever.”
