The woman, called Jaiah, went into the Asda store in London wearing a white top, joggers, and a hoodie, when she was confronted by a member of staff.

In the short video, she could be heard chatting to the member of staff calmly at the Isle of Dogs Asda branch.

She also claims that the worker told her that she doesn't respect herself, although in the video the employee can be heard to deny this.

The man said: "It's not because you don't respect yourself, we have a policy in ASDA."

Sharing her experience on Twitter, Jaiah wrote: "So tonight in ASDA, Isle of Dogs, I was told by an employee that I wasn't wearing enough clothes, I wasn't respecting myself, that I'm basically naked and I shouldn't be in there.

"Honestly the most disgusting behaviour."

Asda has since offered Jaiah an apology and has said they have launched an investigation at the store into what happened.

A spokesperson said: "As soon as we were made aware of this incident we launched an investigation within the store.

"We have been in contact with Jaiah to explain that this is not our policy and to apologise for the negative experience they had on this occasion."

On Twitter, the Asda Service Team also responded, suggesting that they plan to help make things right with the woman following her treatment.

They wrote: "Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

"This is not a recognised policy at Asda and we are really sorry for the service you received. I've spoken to the store manager who is addressing this incident and I would be happy to discuss how we can put it right for you?"

Others have commented on the incident since the video was shared.

Another said: "So in other words, he is basically stating also that Asda have told their workers that they are not allowed to have a girlfriend/Boyfriend or a husband/wife if they work there, what an infringement on human rights."

A third simply wrote: "What the f***?"

LADbible has contacted Asda for a further statement on the matter.
