Walmart boycott threatened after outcry over 'Impeach 45' clothing

Trump supporters boycott Walmart for selling 'Impeach 45' clothing | TheHill

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

Ryan Fournier, chairman of the group Students for Trump, was one of the first to discover Walmart was selling the clothing item, according to the International Business Times.

The superstore's online platform sold apparel promoting impeaching the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump.

A GoFundMe campaign to assist with the Schaffer's medical and travel expenses has raised more than $80,000 as of Monday evening. The Vermont Center for Dance Education said Ms Schaffer had been a part of their "dance family" for years.

What those users didn't realize was that Walmart is also selling a variety of pro-Trump hats and shirts. As noted by Bloomberg, the real sellers are companies such as Old Glory and Teespring Inc., which advertise on Walmart's website and give the retail giant a cut of the profits.

A Walmart spokeswoman did not return a request for comment. But overnight, Trump supporters have been expressing anger toward Walmart on social media, with the hashtag #BoycottWalmart gathering more than 27,700 tweets at the time of publication. The continued sale of the clothing items and whether or not a widespread boycott of Walmart catches on has not yet been determined.

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

Each package contains food, beverages, a phone, a flashlight, candles, a lighter and a map of the cave. Anmar Mirza , a leading American cave rescue expert, said many challenges remain for the rescuers.

Walmart has caused outrage over its apparel before. Last year, the retailer came under fire after a third-party seller offered t-shirts that suggested killing journalists.

To be fair, however, Yahoo Lifestyle points out that Walmart has pulled other merchandise on similar grounds.
