Chile’s Economy Minister Luis Felipe Cespedes has apologised for his reaction upon being presented with an inflatable sex doll at an industry dinner on Tuesday.
He could be seen laughing when he was given the doll by the head of Chile’s Manufacturers’ and Exporters’ Association, Roberto Fantuzzi.
Mr Cespedes said he had been “caught by surprise” by the present.
Many Chileans expressed their outrage at the incident on Twitter.
Mr Fantuzzi handed Mr Cespedes the naked doll on stage at the annual dinner of the Manufacturers’ and Exporters Association (known by the acronym Asexma).
The doll had a sign pasted over its mouth reading “To stimulate the economy”.
Photos of the event show Mr Cespedes laughing and later walking off the stage holding the doll.
