'Impeach 45' apparel leads to Walmart boycott threats

Trump supporters boycott Walmart for selling 'Impeach 45' clothing Walmart
Cristina Norman | 04 July, 2018, 02:11

While the 13 products, ranging in price from $11.95 to $24.90 were still searchable on Walmart's website on Tuesday morning, each individual item led consumers to a "Sorry..." Other impeach Trump items were also available via Walmart.com, as were items bearing the president's signature "Make America Great Again" slogan.

Last year, Wal-Mart came under fire after a third-party seller offered T-shirts that suggested killing journalists. We have reached out to Walmart for comment, and will update this story with more details when the company responds.

The T-shirts weren't being sold by Wal-Mart itself, but by third-party sellers including Old Glory and Teespring Inc.

The outcry sparked a #BoycottWalmart trend on Twitter as users expressed their distaste for the chain promoting the impeachment of President Trump, echoing some Congressional Democrats.

The company has been selling apparel from the third-party vendor Old Glory that contains the phrase, which refers to 45th President Donald Trump.

Walmart has been targeted before by angry shoppers after controversial items have appeared on the platform. "We're removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies", a Walmart spokesperson said.

The store came under fire in November after a shirt design that read "Rope".

On June 27, Walmart announced that it was introducing a 3D virtual shopping tour on its website, as the retailer pours billions of dollars into beefing up its e-commerce business.
