Vans, the famous shoes and apparel company received a lot of criticism after it announced the prizes for its Vans Royal Side Stripe 2019, a skating contest, in Mexico.

Vans announced that the prize for the male winner would be MXN $100,000, while the female winner would be given MXN $12,000, almost 10 times less than the male winner.

And after a lot of criticisms through social media, the company backtracked an announced that it was an “unfortunate incident” that would not be repeated in the future and announced that the winners, both female and male, would receive the same amount.

The first place will receive MXN $100,000, the second place will receive MXN $50,000, and the third place will receive MXN $30,000.

The company also announced that the money previously allocated for the female winner would be given to an organization that promotes sports among girls and women in Mexico.
