"What kind of message are you trying to send?"
Walmart has found itself on the receiving end of a torrent of outrage after it was discovered Monday that the superstore was selling anti-Trump "Impeach 45" apparel on its website. As noted by Bloomberg, the real sellers are companies such as Old Glory and Teespring Inc., which advertise on Walmart's website and give the retail giant a cut of the profits.
Walmart's third-party marketplace, which has millions of items available from various independent sellers, also has "Make America Great Again" merchandise - showing how diverse the site can be at any given time. Walmart didn't immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.
"These items were sold by third party sellers on our open marketplace, and were not offered directly by Walmart", a spokesperson told the BBC on Tuesday.
People took to Twitter Tuesday morning to voice their frustration over the situation, tweeting #BoycottWalmart.
The company has been selling apparel from the third-party vendor Old Glory that contains the phrase, which refers to 45th President Donald Trump. The continued sale of the clothing items and whether or not a widespread boycott of Walmart catches on has not yet been determined. "We're removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies".
It's not the first time Walmart has gotten into hot water for controversial t-shirts for sale on its website. "Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required", after facing massive backlash.
The shirt wasn't made by Walmart.
