Walmart lists 'Impeach 45' shirts & baby onesies, boycott threatened

Eileen GuzmanJul 04, 2018

Calls for a boycott against Walmart are mounting over items promoting the impeachment of President Donald Trump sold on the retailer's website.

Can we get Shaq to purchase a few of those shirts for Auntie Maxine Waters who chanted "Impeach 45!" to a crowd over the weekend.

Reports indicate "Impeach 45" clothing is made by a number of manufacturers, some of which also produce items featuring with the "Make America Great Again" and "Donald Trump Speaks For Me" slogans.

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.

"These items were sold by third-party sellers on our open marketplace and were not offered directly by Walmart", a company spokesperson told Yahoo Lifestyle.

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

The members of the Walton family - most prominently Jim, Rob, and Alice - generally hold conservative political views that align with President Trump's policies.

The "Impeach 45" shirt was sold by Old Glory, a third-party seller using Walmart's Marketplace platform.

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

One Twitter user called for Walmart to "clean up" its act, saying as a "pro American company it is wrong to politicise and be anti-US President with any product". We have reached out to Walmart for comment, and will update this story with any reply.

When News4Jax searched the link the apparel was found on, it appeared to have been taken down.

Walmart came under fire for another incident last November when customers noticed a shirts that read, "Rope".
