Walmart causes outrage after selling ‘Impeach 45’ merchandise on its website move sparks boycott

Wal-Mart is under fire after its website offered T-shirts from third-party sellers with "IMPEACH 45" emblazoned across the front in big capital letters - a call to bring down the 45th US president, Donald Trump.

While social media users blasted Walmart for selling anti-Trump products, a quick search of the online store shows that the retailer also sells numerous pro-Trump hats and shirts, emblazoned with slogans such as "Make America Great Again", "I heart Trump" and "Trump won, get over it".

People took to Twitter Tuesday morning to voice their frustration over the situation, tweeting #BoycottWalmart.

Fortune credits Ryan Fournier, chairman of Students for Trump, with the discovery of the t-shirts for sale and the call for a boycott that followed.
