Walmart is no stranger to pulling products that made it to the shelves after slipping past the censors, but the retail giant is making headlines yet again. This time, a t-shirt subtly calling for the lynching of journalists somehow made it to the racks:
"Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some Assembly Required."
Not surprisingly, the t-shirt has also made it to the top of the trending stories on Facebook and Twitter.

Whatever your feelings towards the media and journalists in the era of "fake news" --- we can all agree this is a step too far. Thankfully the shirts have been pulled and now it's a game of wait and see as to what the retail giant's next palm to the face will be.
