Twitter users call for Walmart boycott over ‘Impeach 45’ clothes

Outcry after

Fournier's message soon went viral, leading to angry consumers threatening to boycott the company.

The Walmart.com marketplace is teeming with MAGA hats and coffee mugs, but the company has just pulled an anti-Trump shirt with the slogan "Impeach 45" from its website. Walmart hasn't responded to media inquiries seeking a response to the boycott threats. Such sellers can sign up to advertise products on Walmart's website, and the retail giant gets a commission on each sale.

The #BoycottWalmart popped up on Twitter as users expressed distaste for the world's largest retailer seemingly promoting the impeachment of President Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United states.

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

"These items were sold by third party sellers on our open marketplace, and were not offered directly by Walmart", a spokesperson told the BBC on Tuesday. By Tuesday afternoon the items appear to have been taken down from the Walmart site.

In the past, Walmart has issued statements after these incidents saying: "This item was sold by a third-party seller on our marketplace and clearly violates our policy".

Walmart's "Impeach 45" apparel causes stir on social media. Last year, Walmart came under fire for selling a shirt that read "Rope. Tree. Journalist. SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED" was listed on its website through an outside company.
