Earlier this week, Walmart caught some big-time heat for a shirt it was selling online.

As reported by Independent Journal Review's Caleb Hull:

Walmart has made some controversial decisions with its clothing recently, as it came under fire for selling a shirt that read, “Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required.”

The shirt was nowhere to be found on the website come Thursday. On Friday, IJR reported that Walmart was also selling antifa gear — a group that the Department of Homeland Security considers “domestic terrorists.” Members of antifa are known for violence, damaging property, and their anti-capitalist ideology.

Here is an image of one of the many shirts that were available on the site:

There was quite the reaction on social media:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin even weighed in:

Walmart didn't release a statement after all of the backlash. But a quick search of antifa in its store now turns up nothing associated with the group. And that tells its customers all they need to know.
