  • Walmart causes outrage after selling ‘Impeach 45’ merchandise on its website move sparks boycott

He asked the company in a tweet, "What kind of message are you trying to send?"

"Impeach 45" was printed on T-shirts and infant onesies manufactured by apparel company Old Glory and posted to the Walmart site.

There are a few companies selling Impeach 45 apparel, including the company Old Glory.

U.S. retail giant Walmart has come under fire after angry shoppers spotted a T-shirt range being sold on its third-party website calling for Donald Trump to be impeached.

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. Students for Trump chairman Ryan Fournier called attention to it Monday on Twitter, Fortune and other outlets reported, causing a social media outcry. Walmart hasn't responded to media inquiries seeking a response to the boycott threats.

Another police officer said that suicide is being suspected but possible angles of homicide are also being investigated. The local residents of the area reported the matter to police and investigation is underway.

More than half of the stuff Amazon sold in 2017 came from third-party sellers, rather than Amazon itself, and Walmart saw its sales jump after it overhauled its marketplace.

It's not the first time Walmart has gotten into hot water for controversial t-shirts for sale on its website.

"We're removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies", the spokesperson said.

Teespring had their shirts pulled off the Walmart website days later.

Walmart has been targeted before by angry shoppers after controversial items have appeared on the platform. The company removed a shirt with the slogan "Rope".
