On August 3 it was reported that model Lara Bingle had been dropped by ROC Eyewear after tweeting a photo of herself wearing sunglasses by Karen Walker.
AAA accepts that Ms Bingle was not dumped after being seen wearing the rival sunglasses.
In fact, her contract with her sponsor ROC Eyewear was not terminated, it merely came to an end when the contract expired on 30 April 2012.
Ms Bingle is at liberty to wear whatever sunglasses that she chooses.
ROC Eyewear has said it had no difficulties with Ms Bingle during the term of her contract or subsequently.
AAA regrets the error and apologises to Ms Bingle for any embarrassment the erroneous report may have caused.
