How lovely! Amazon sells infant and toddler clothes with ‘slavery gets s*** done’ on them

Who in the world green-lighted this disaster?

A profanity laced, racially charged t-shirt caught the eye of Amazon shoppers and now the online giant is under heavy fire.

The shirt boasts a picture of the Egyptian pyramids and states, “Slavery gets s*** done.”   According to pictures circulating the internet, it was available in sizes from infant to adult.

Amazon yanked the shirts and banned the vendor, Styleart, when complaints started to pour in, but it hasn’t totally quelled the outrage.

Your local mom-and-pop, brick and mortars would proably appreciate that.

It’s more than reasonable to assume that in a corporation as mammoth as Amazon, the green-light of this shirt somehow fell through cracks. A spokesman for Amazon gave the following statement:

“All Marketplace sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who don’t will be subject to action including potential removal of their account,” an Amazon spokesperson said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE. “The products in question are no longer available.”

Jakub Sobik of Anti-Slavery International weighed in and told Reuters, “if it’s meant to funny, they failed miserably.”

This is the second shirt this month to fuel widespread outrage over racially charged comments. Earlier in January H&M pulled kid’s shirts that read “coolest monkey.” Many believed the message was a racist jab, and took issue that a young African-American boy was used to model the shirt for the ad.
