People are threatening to boycott Walmart for selling 'Impeach 45' clothing




 

People are furious that Walmart is selling "Impeach 45" merchandise aimed at President Trump.

The clothing, which includes T-shirts, sweatshirts, football jerseys, and baby clothing, was first spotted by Ryan Fournier, chairman of the coalition Students for Trump, who tweeted Tuesday, "Walmart, why are you selling Impeach 45 baby clothes on your website????? What kind of message are you trying to send?" He included a photo of a $16.95 onesie with a one-star review.


The tweet traveled, drawing disgust from Trump fans and prompting demands to boycott the company.




Yet many people felt the outrage was hypocritical.



One Walmart employee even voiced his gratitude for the message.


Walmart did not return Yahoo Lifestyle's request for comment.

The company also sells "Make America Great Again" (MAGA) items, including baseball caps and mugs.

In the fall, facing similar pressure, Walmart pulled T-shirts that read, 'Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required." As noted by Ad Age, the phrase was not new, but when a Trump supporter was spotted wearing the shirt at a rally for the president, it created a backlash.

In 2016, Walmart pulled T-shirts bearing the phrase "Bulletproof - Black Lives Matter" after the National Fraternal Order of Police charged the retailer with "profiting from racial division."
