Walmart is inadvertently removing offensive T-shirt from its stores

by Ana Lopez

The T-shirt was supposed to celebrate the clean life. But one Walmart shopper noticed that it also had a really dirty word in it.

“I need this shirt before Walmart realizes what they’ve done. Find the hidden word,” tweeted @whosurdaddienow

Walmart found it and promptly snatched the T-shirt from the racks.

“This was not intended and the T-shirt has been removed,” said a Walmart spokesperson told Newsweek.

An image of the shirt remains on Twitter, with over 2.5 million views and counting.

‘Not on purpose’

What is the quarrel about? The $5 pro-environment shirt was emblazoned with an all-caps “RE” next to the words “cycle,” “use,” “new,” and “think.” However, upon closer inspection, customers noticed that the first letter of each word was inadvertently the c-word.

This isn’t the first time Walmart has had to remove an offensive item from its store. Earlier this year, the retail giant pulled a pair of men’s hiking boots from its website after customers complained about a bright red “KKK” logo on the tongue.
