Walmart’s ‘Impeach 45’ apparel sparks boycott and causes social media stir

Outcry after

Outcry after"Impeach 45 apparel appears on Walmart website

It started Monday night when Ryan Fournier, chairman of Students for Trump, tweeted about a line of "Impeach 45" onesies advertised on Walmart's website.

The superstore's online platform sold apparel promoting impeaching the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump. The company also sells a wide range of pro-Trump merchandise, including a substantial number of "Make America Great Again" hats.

Walmart has come under fire for selling a set of politically-charged t-shirts on its website, and is now facing a potential consumer boycott as a result.

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

Walmart did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"These items were sold by third party sellers on our open marketplace, and were not offered directly by Walmart". By Tuesday afternoon the items appear to have been taken down from the Walmart site. "We're removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies", a Walmart spokesperson said.

Walmart's "Impeach 45" apparel causes stir on social media.

The store came under fire in November after a shirt design that read "Rope. Tree. Journalist. SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED." that was being sold from its online store previous year.

On June 27, Walmart announced that it was introducing a 3D virtual shopping tour on its website, as the retailer pours billions of dollars into beefing up its e-commerce business.
