Walmart's 'Impeach 45' Apparel Draws Swift Outrage

The apparel in question come emblazoned with phrases that read "Impeach 45" or "45 You're Fired", which directly refer to the premature termination of current U.S. President Donald Trump's term in the Oval Office.

As of early Tuesday morning, the "Impeach 45" clothing was still available on Walmart's website. Walmart has apparently responded to the outrage by taking down any clothing or paraphernalia related to the impeachment of Trump or Obama.

The items, sold by third-party seller Old Glory, have since been removed from the website.

But the accusations miss a crucial fact about how Walmart runs its website, or more specifically, its third-party marketplace, where the items appeared.

The hashtag #BoycottWalmart was among the top-trending topics in the United States on the social media site, racking up more than 50,000 tweets by mid-afternoon.

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.

CafePress has had "Impeach Trump" shirts, caps and throw pillows available on Walmart.com in the past as well, and still offers anti-Trump items along with pro-Trump items.

It was sold on its marketplace, which features products by many brands, and includes political t-shirts representing many different points of view. The company removed a shirt with the slogan "Rope". But once they're approved-a process that takes a few weeks-Walmart doesn't watch every item put up for sale.

President Trump's campaign manager, Brad Parscale, tweeted Tuesday that Walmart was removing the T-shirt and a boycott was not necessary. "Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required", noted The Wrap.
