Walmart Take Down “Impeach 45″ Merchandise After Backlash
Ok, how far is too far?
Walmart has removed clothing from their website that says “Impeach 45” meaning President Trump, the 45th president after an outcry from his supporters.
CNN News report, the T-shirt and baby onesies were gone Wednesday (July 4th) after the retailer had said a day earlier they the products were pulled, that came in response from Ryan Fournier a conservative commentator who tweeted about the clothing and asking why it was being sold.
The tweet started a backlash from other supporters and called for a boycott.
Walmart has released a tweet about the merchandise saying:
These items were sold by third-party sellers on our open marketplace and were not offered directly by Walmart. We're removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies.
CNN notes, however, that Walmart is still selling shirts with political messages, including negative ones about Trump and Hillary Clinton, and that other retailers, including Amazon, are continuing to sell the "Impeach 45" clothing.
What do you make of them removing the "Impeach 45" shirts, but still selling other T-shirts on their website with negative political messages, including about Trump and Hillary Clinton?
