Wal-Mart draws fire for 'Impeach 45' T-shirts

Impeach Trump

"Impeach 45" was printed on T-shirts and infant onesies manufactured by apparel company Old Glory and posted to the Walmart site. One shirt mirrors an anti-Hillary shirt and says "I'm really Donald Trump, don't let this "human" costume fool you", and another reads "Trumpty Dumpty: We need a wall".

Shirt-maker Old Glory says it sold thousands on Tuesday alone, but more pro-Trump items sell than anti-Trump ones, company says.

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. Such sellers can sign up to advertise products on Walmart's website, and the retail giant gets a commission on each sale. That marketplace is a sprawling e-commerce free-for-all where you can buy Nike sneakers, Louis Vuitton handbags, Urban Decay eyeshadow, or refurbished Apple computers from countless individual sellers who have no connection to Walmart, other than using its site to peddle their wares.

Last year, Walmart came under fire after a third-party seller offered T-shirts that suggested killing journalists.




Walmart has caused outrage over its apparel before.

To be fair, however, Yahoo Lifestyle points out that Walmart has pulled other merchandise on similar grounds.

Walmart has caught the ire of Trump supporters online for selling some very anti-Trump apparel.

Walmart's Marketplace has given the company headaches over which items to permit. Walmart didn't immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment. The company removed a shirt with the slogan "Rope".
