A post about a necklace by a luxury fashion brand shared on the official Instagram profile of fashion watchdog page Diet Prada has created quite a stir online – and also prompted many to share hilarious reactions.

The post features a new necklace sold by luxury fashion brand Bottega Veneta for $2000. What’s prompted a flurry of reactions is what the necklace looks like - a telephone cord. In their post, Diet Prada added an image of actual telephone cords available for $5 online. Take a look:

Since being shared, the post has gathered more than 1.2 lakh likes – and counting. It has also accumulated tons of comments from people. While some wrote how the product left them irked, others took a more hilarious route to react.

American fashion designer Natalia Fedner shared her displeasure over the whole thing and posted a comment on the post. “I cannot. I know so many designers and artisans who work their hands to the bone, spend weeks on a single piece, make it from expensive materials - And charge less than this. Prices like this on cheap items, just because there’s a famous brand name attached, is pretty insulting to those of us who put so much effort into our handmade pieces. 5 minutes of their labor = 2 weeks of ours,” Fedner wrote.

“They are really just reaching into the junk drawer eyes closed and slapping 2k on whatever comes out,” shared another. “Yooooooooooo! Who knew I could sell my old landline chords for $2G’s,” expressed a third. There were many who showcased the same opinion while commenting.

“Grandma called. She wants her phone cord back!” joked an individual. “This is ridiculous,” shared another.
