A popular clothing chain came under fire for selling a t-shirt that resembles Nazi concentration camp uniforms.
Now, Spanish clothing retailer Zara, has pulled the shirt from its website, which they named “sheriff t-Shirt.”
The shirt was similar to those worn by Jews in Nazi concentration camps. The Zara shirt sported horizontal rather than vertical stripes.
The shirt contained a large yellow six-pointed star in the upper left section, in the exact place where Nazis forced Jews to wear the Star of David.
The word “sheriff” was written very faintly on the large star. The shirt caused outrage in several countries and on social media websites.
It was also on sale at the Israeli Zara website.
Zara is owned by the Spanish company Inditex, a fashion group with more than 5,500 stores in 86 countries in Europe, North America, Asia and Africa.
Inditex also owns Pull & Bear, Bershka, and Stradivarius.
