Walmart pulls controversial shirt from shelves

Posted: Updated:

Walmart pulled a controversial shirt from its website Wednesday.

The black shirt features the words "Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required." The radio television digital news association says it brought the apparel to Walmart's attention in a letter. It believes the shirt would "openly encourage violence targeting journalists."

According the nonprofit organization, within hours of sending the letter Walmart had removed the shirt from its site. The shirt was being sold by the third-party seller TeeSpring.com.

Thursday Teespring removed the t-shirt from its site as well.
