Amazon pulls offensive `keep calm and rape them` T-shirts
Washington: Online retailer Amazon has been slammed for selling offensive T-shirts with slogans that seem to promote crime against women.`
Earlier on Saturday the firm launched T-shirts for sale with messages including "keep calm and hit her".
According to the BBC, an Amazon statement said later "those items are not available for sale".
The T-shirts are based on the World War II wartime propaganda slogan " keep calm and carry on."
Among the 8,425 T-shirts offered for sale by the company on the Amazon site had offensive slogans like, "keep calm and knife her", "keep calm and rape them" and "keep calm and grope a lot".
On Friday, US company Solid Gold Bomb apologised for selling the T-shirt and removed it from sale, saying a listing was automatically generated in error.
