Following outcry, Zara parent company removes product worldwide, while Zara Israel apologizes and says the shirts will be ‘exterminated.’
It’s a SHERIFF shirt for your three-year-old. Obviously. What else could it be?
I mean, here, take a better look:
It even says Sheriff in (transparent, cutout) letters across the star.
Why, what else does it remind you of?
The shirt is produced in Turkey and appears to be available in Zara’s Israeli, French, Albanian and Swedish online stores. I’ve reached out to Zara and will update this post with the company’s reply.
Update 1pm IDT: Zara parent company Inditex told +972 the shirt was inspired by Classical Western films and that it is no longer available. The Israeli chapter of the company apologized more profusely, adding that it was decided to remove the offensive product from the shelves – and “exterminate” it.
We kid you not.
[Correction – an earlier version of this post stated the shirt was only available in Israel.]
