Yesterday, Twitter user @PsychoGF_ posted a photo of a tee she found at her local TJ Maxx in Kissamee, Florida. psycho girlfriend @PsychoGF_ It is absolutely sickening that @tjmaxx thinks it's okay to sell a shirt like this. 12:20 AM - 17 Mar 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite Her tweet blew up, and she was contacted by TJ Maxx who asked where the shirt, made by California surf brand Tavik, was spotted. Twitter In response, T.J. Maxx removed the shirt from its shelves. T.J.Maxx @tjmaxx @PsychoGF_ We would like to make certain this is addressed. What store location did you see this shirt at? 01:55 AM - 17 Mar 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite But that wasn't before Twitter users caught wind of the shirt controversy. Some were offended by the shirt's references to suicide. psycho girlfriend @PsychoGF_ @foreverjustus @tjmaxx have someone close to commit suicide by hanging themselves and then you'd understand. 11:39 AM - 17 Mar 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite Advertisement Johnny Sugar @johnny_sugar_ @ReignOfApril @tavik "We're not racist, we're just pro-suicide, we swear!" 05:05 AM - 17 Mar 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite PROUD MONKEY @QueenVeeBow2me @tavik also what if somebody on your team struggled with thoughts of suicide....just a terrible design all the way around 12:49 PM - 17 Mar 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite While others felt the shirt was making obvious offensive connotations to lynching. Kimberly Dunwoody @Kimbe1214 @tavik It's abhorrent, and you all knew that beforehand. When is a lynching reference, a good idea? 05:45 AM - 17 Mar 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite Vicki Walden @TheVikChick @tavik Hang loose t-shirt, do u have any other things in your #racism line of t-shirts?

With the history of lynching in this country? You're pathetic, and you'll answer to the highest power. 05:03 AM - 17 Mar 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite The tee has already been pulled from some retailers and from Tavik's site. swell.com!snWEjlXmf9sYRd!v6eqb0Q!/TAVIK-HANG-LOOSE-SS-TEE Though you can still find it on the website BackCountry.com backcountry.com Early this morning, Tavik also released an apology via their Twitter page. TAVIK @tavik We are deeply sorry to anyone who may have been offended. The shirt is being pulled from stores immediately. 04:32 AM - 17 Mar 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite But some are skeptical. Kim Moore @SoulRevision My prob w/@tavik right now is: 1) they made the shirt 2) that wasn't an apology 3) shirt wouldn't be removed if we had not said anything 05:01 AM - 17 Mar 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite Share On facebook Share On facebook Share On vk Share On vk Share On pinterest Share On pinterest Share On lineapp Share On lineapp Share On twitter Share On twitter Share On email Share On email Share On sms Share On sms Share On whatsapp Share On whatsapp Share On more Share On more Share On tumblr Share On tumblr Share On link Share On link Share On copy Share On copy Omg It's Prime Day!
