jamuna news: The London Dungeon tourist attraction has apologised for a promotional Twitter campaign that backfired.
A graphic joking about a murdered sex worker, and another about infecting a partner with a sexually transmitted disease were posted on the attraction's Twitter feed.
Critics said the collection of images was sexist and offensive.
Merlin Entertainment said it was "very sorry" for the campaign and has deleted the tweets.
The group said it had wanted to run a "dark Valentine campaign" to promote the London Dungeon, in which visitors are taken on a tour through London's dark history.
