Wal-Mart boycott after 'Impeach 45' T-shirts

Wal-Mart boycott after 'Impeach 45' T-shirts

According to the International Business Times, Ryan Fournier, chairman of the group Students for Trump, found the clothing item in the website and was the first to report it.

People took to Twitter Tuesday morning to voice their frustration over the situation, tweeting #BoycottWalmart.

The call for a Walmart boycott seemingly picked up steam as conservative media outlets spread the word about the shirts.

After complaints, custom shirt company Teespring removed the shirt from the site.

Walmart sells a myriad of "Make America Great Again" items, such as hats, T-shirts and coffee mugs. The reality is that Walmart, like many other companies, doesn't keep track of everything sold through its online marketplace.

As both the teams have performed exceptionally well in their group stage, no team can be written-off ahead of the encounter. A 2-1 loss to Japan, which will be heavily credited to Colombia going down to 10 men early on.

The "Impeach 45" shirt was sold by Old Glory, a third-party seller using Walmart's Marketplace platform.

Walmart is in consumer crosshairs after shoppers discovered the retailer's line of "Impeach 45" apparel.

One Twitter user called for Walmart to "clean up" its act, saying as a "pro American company it is wrong to politicise and be anti-US President with any product". We have reached out to Walmart for comment, and will update this story with more details when the company responds. The continued sale of the clothing items and whether or not a widespread boycott of Walmart catches on has not yet been determined. Third-party sellers on the website also offer a slew of other politicized products, including "IMPEACH OBAMA" and "IMPEACH NIXON" license plates.

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