“Spike your best friend’s eggnog when they’re not looking,” reads the text accompanying the photo of the two models.

The high-end department store quickly came under fire on social media, as many deemed the ad “creepy,” “rapey” and “inappropriate.”

Bloomingdale’s tweeted an apology after hearing “feedback.”

“We heard your feedback about our catalog copy, which was inappropriate and in poor taste. Bloomingdale’s sincerely apologizes,” the department said.
