Bloomingdale’s pulled a T-shirt from its stores and apologized to anyone who may have found the garment to be “distressing.”

The offending shirt, emblazoned with the phrase “FAKE NEWS,” was removed from the department store and was no longer available online, Fox News reported.

The top “was immediately removed from our selling floor and we apologize to anyone who found this t-shirt distressing,” a spokesperson for Bloomingdales told Fox News on Monday.

Allison Kaden, a reporter for WPIX, called attention to the shirt at a store in White Plains, New York in a tweet on Sunday, telling the retailer it wasn’t “funny or fashionable,” and that it “delegitimizes hard working journalists.”

Bloomingdale’s, which was founded in 1861, thanked Kaden for “taking the time to alert us” and promised it would be taking action.

There were plenty of snowflakes joining Kaden’s offended rant to the department store chain, up in arms about  President Donald Trump’s catchphrase for negative news coverage.

But many Twitter users felt the outrage should be directed at journalists and their “fear” of phrases on clothing.

Not surprisingly, the left’s pearl-clutching only seemed to have the opposite effect.
