Valentino is under fire for promoting the handbag Amy Adams wore to Philip Seymour Hoffmans funeral on Friday.

The fashion house sent out a press release saying, “We are pleased to announce Amy Adams carrying the Valentino Garavani Rockstud Duble bag from the Spring/Summer 2014 collection on Feb. 6 in New York.”

People were disgusted by the shameless marketing ploy, blasting Valentino for its insensitivity to Hoffman and his loved ones.

The brand issued an apology later in the day, tweeting, “We regret releasing a photo of Amy Adams with a Valentino bag. Unaware of the circumstances it was a mistake and we apologize to Ms. Adams.”
