After an outcry, the company decided to remove the product from its website, even though it'd been selling them since 2014.

The company has been selling the dreadlocks since 2014 so it's unclear why Free People has decided to pull them now.

"Add a little something extra to your do with these colorful dreadlock extensions featuring wood, bead, and flower accents," read the product description. "Comb-on application makes for easy on and off wear. Comes in a pack of 10."

When asked about the dreadlocks, a spokesperson for Free People issued the following statement to BuzzFeed.

"Free People’s designers and buyers draw inspiration from fashions and trends from across the globe," the statement said. "In hindsight, we missed an opportunity to recognize the rich history and diverse cultures that have contributed to the timelessness of dreadlocks, and we have therefore decided to pull the product immediately."
