TJ Maxx Removes Offensive Noose Shirt From Stores
What is this fascination with hanging and nooses lately??? T.J. Maxx was forced to remove this T-shirt from its shelves after it caught national attention once an offended shopper took to twitter to express outrage over the disturbing message it sent.
Is this referential to suicide? Lynching? According to the retailer, it was all about…surfing. As the manufacturer’s PR manager Kelly McElroy said in a statement:
“We sincerely apologize for any offense caused by this T-shirt. This item was released without going through proper protocols and has zero relation to anything other than surfing. We will be pulling this item from retailers immediately.”
How could they have missed the BLATANT impropriety of a shirt like this? SMH.
