#BoycottWalmart Is Trending on Twitter After 'Impeach 45' T-Shirts Anger Customers

As of early Tuesday morning, the "Impeach 45" clothing was still available on Walmart's website.

Reports indicate "Impeach 45" clothing is made by a number of manufacturers, some of which also produce items featuring with the "Make America Great Again" and "Donald Trump Speaks For Me" slogans. We have reached out to Walmart for comment, and will update this story with more details when the company responds.

"As a fierce proponent of the First Amendment that is politically nonpartisan, we recognize Walmart's right to sell the T-Shirts, and the right of consumers to purchase and wear them", the group's executive director Dan Shelley wrote in his letter to the retailer.

Trump supporters took to Twitter with the hashtag #BoycottWalmart.

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

Rose came off the bench with England 6-0 up over Panama for the final 20 minutes of the game, with the match he already won. After a frantic first half many people were wondering if England could win by the biggest margin at a World Cup.

In the past, Walmart has issued statements after these incidents saying: "This item was sold by a third-party seller on our marketplace and clearly violates our policy".

Walmart has caused outrage over its apparel before.

The company issued a similar statement when it came under fire a year ago for selling a shirt with the words "Rope".

On June 27, Walmart announced that it was introducing a 3D virtual shopping tour on its website, as the retailer pours billions of dollars into beefing up its e-commerce business.
