Skybound and Elex have apologized for the matter and will be more careful in the future.“With immediate effect, Elex has created new policies and processes to ensure higher levels of accountability in the future. To that end, we have removed the art in question from all of our channels to never use it again. We believe that this situation will help us be more careful next times and we hope to regain your confidence through the actions that follow these words, “concludes the note.
