Tottenham have apologised for a "wholly unacceptable" survey question that asked fans in the United States whether "a woman's place is in the home?".
The responses available to the question ranged from "definitely agree" to "definitely disagree".
Another fan asked: "Are you sure this survey wasn't sent out like. during the reign of Queen Victoria?"
Some responded suggesting that the posts had been faked, with one user saying "this can't be real, can it?!?".
Several US-based Spurs supporters claimed they had received the same question while completing the survey. "I did think it was beyond odd when I was asked that", wrote Artur Da Sila. Those were the options for every question for that section tho.
The survey was understood to have been compiled by a third party called Kantar Media, and was sent in an email with the subject heading: "Calling all US Spurs fans: tell us what you think".
Featuring a club crest at the top, it read: "We have an ongoing commitment to learn more about the specific requirements of our loyal fans and everyone who interacts with the club".
In a club statement issued late on Tuesday, a spokesman for Tottenham confirmed the question had been swiftly removed once the "regrettable oversight" was discovered.
The statement continued: "The survey questions were compiled by a third party on behalf of the club".
The north London club has removed the question from the survey and said "we sincerely apologize to anyone offended by its initial inclusion".
Sky News has approached Kantar Media for comment.
