Zara Accidentally Created A Holocaust Uniform For Toddlers

With horizontal stripes and a yellow star, Zara’s “Sheriff” T-shirt is a little too similar to the uniform of Holocaust prisoners


 

Spanish clothing retailer, Zara, may have seen their “Sheriff” t-shirt as nothing more than a cute nod to the Old West, but not everyone agrees. People expressed their concern that the shirt was reminiscent of the striped shirts that Holocaust survivors were forced to wear in the Nazi concentration camps during World War II.

Twitter users were up in arms over the offensive t-shirt, with many asking “what were they thinking?”

 

Our general thought, they weren’t thinking. It was simply a case of historical ignorance. Today the retail chain apologized for selling the shirt; it has now been removed from their online store.

“The item in question has now been removed from all Zara stores and Zara.com,” a spokesperson for the brand said. “The garment was inspired by the classic Western films, but we now recognize that the design could be seen as insensitive and apologize sincerely for any offence caused to our customers.”

This isn’t the first time that Zara has been accused of selling anti-Semitic products. In 2007, Zara removed a handbag from stores that was embroidered with Swastika symbols.

 

Here are a few more tweets showing how strong the reaction was:
