Walmart Draws Fire as Third-Party Sellers Hawk 'Impeach 45' T-Shirts

Fortune credits Ryan Fournier, chairman of Students for Trump, with the discovery of the t-shirts for sale and the call for a boycott that followed.

SAN DIEGO- Walmart sparked controversy for selling anti-Trump clothing on its website.

Walmart is in consumer crosshairs after shoppers discovered the retailer's line of "Impeach 45" apparel.

And while Trump supporters are in an uproar over the Impeach 45 apparel, they must have forgotten that Walmart is a business and also sells a plethora of "Make America Great Again" hats, tee-shirts and cups to drink their haterade from. Fournier wrote in a tweet directed at Walmart.

The clothing also sent social media into a frenzy and caused #BoycottWalmart to trend Tuesday.


The company said in a statement to ABC: "These items were sold by third party sellers on our open marketplace, and were not offered directly by Walmart".

A spokesman for Wal-Mart didn't immediately respond to requests for comment. "We're removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies", a Walmart spokesperson told TIME.

It's not the first time Walmart has gotten into hot water for controversial t-shirts for sale on its website. It pulled merchandise branded with "Bulletproof - Black Lives Matter" after complaints from the National Fraternal Order of Police, and past year it removed T-shirts emblazoned with "Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required", on its third-party marketplace.

Walmart, not long ago, was in trouble with liberals as well for a shirt it soldthat read "Rope".
