‘Impeach 45’ clothing sparks Walmart boycott campaign

Users were taking issue with "Impeach 45" apparel that was being offered on Walmart's website. The availability of the apparel sparked a "boycott Walmart" campaign in support of Trump. "We are an American company and we are proud to be American, and this is what we do: We sell T-shirts for a living". Walmart sells the t-shirts, but it doesn't manufacture them.

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

As of early Tuesday morning, the "Impeach 45" clothing was still available on Walmart's website. Fournier is quite active on Twitter.

US retailer Walmart Inc (WMT.N) faced an outcry from supporters of President Donald Trump on Tuesday for listing for sale on its open marketplace clothing with the slogan "Impeach 45", an apparent reference to Trump, the country's 45th president.

The four men, three women and four girls were found hanging from an iron grill used as a ventilator in the courtyard. Today, after seeing that the shop was not open even at 7.30 am, one of the neighbours went to their house.

Ryan Fournier, chairman of the group Students for Trump, was one of the first to discover Walmart was selling the clothing item, according to the International Business Times.

It's not the first time Walmart has caused a stir.

Teespring had their shirts pulled off the Walmart website days later. It appears that Walmart has now taken down the listing for the shirt, caving in to the pressure.

The hashtag #BoycottWalmart was among the top-trending topics in the United States on the social media site, racking up more than 50,000 tweets by mid-afternoon. I doubt it, but I suppose it's possible.
