The singer is currently on her El Dorado World Tour

Live Nation have apologised after an item of Shakira‘s tour merchandise appeared to include Nazi imagery.

The singer is currently in the middle of her El Dorado world tour, with dates in Europe and North American coming up on her schedule.

A gold-coloured necklace shown on Shakira’s website featured what looked like a sun design, but, some fans pointed out, also bore resemblance to a “black sun” or “sunwheel” Nazi emblem that contains hidden swastikas. It was priced at $9.95 (£7.50), but has since been removed from sale.
