Twitter Users Call for Walmart Boycott Over ‘Impeach 45’ Clothes

Trump supporters boycott Walmart for selling 'Impeach 45' clothing

The retailer (WMT, +0.98%) is facing calls for a boycott after supporters of President Donald Trump discovered a shirt for sale readying "Impeach 45".

The outrage apparently worked; Walmart appears to have pulled the items from its website, after the hashtag #boycottWalmart quickly began trending across social media platforms.

Walmart's third-party marketplace, which has millions of items available from various independent sellers, also has "Make America Great Again" merchandise - showing how diverse the site can be at any given time.

A quick search on Walmart.com revealed three other companies selling Trump impeachment merchandise.

United States retail giant Walmart has removed anti-Trump merchandise following online boycott threats from the president's supporters.

Tanker goes up in flame on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway
Images published on social media showed massive clouds of black smoke billowing into the sky from vehicles burning on the road. There were 45 cars caught in the inferno, along with five buses, two trucks, INEC tricycle and the tanker.

"These items were sold by third party sellers on our open marketplace, and were not offered directly by Walmart", a spokesperson said.

The shirt wasn't made by Walmart.

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 number refers to President Donald Trump, who is the 45th president.

The T-shirts weren't being sold by Walmart itself, but by third-party sellers including Old Glory and Teespring Inc.

Walmart's Marketplace has given the company headaches over which items to permit. In November 2017, the company stopped selling a shirt that read "Rope". Walmart hasn't responded to media inquiries seeking a response to the boycott threats.
