Famous international fashion chain Zara pulled from sale a striped children’s top that resembled concentration camp uniforms that Jews wore in Nazi Germany.
“The shirt bears a large six-pointed star on the upper-left section, in the exact place where Nazis forced Jews to wear the Star of David,”
wrote Israeli newspaper Haaretz.
Zara apologized and said the shirt was “inspired by the sheriff’s stars from the Classic Western films.”
However, Zara’s fans didn’t like the explanation and posted numerous comments on Facebook regarding the incident.
“After your concentration camp tee shirt I was wondering when is your ZYKLON B perfume coming out?”
“Whomever the anti-Semitic person is that decided to market your Nazi-inspired “sherrif” t-shirt should be fired!,”
“I will never, EVER buy any of your products again!”
This isn’t the first time Zara has been accused of anti-Semitism.
In 2007, the company was forced to withdraw a handbag from its stores because the design featured symbols that looked like swastikas.
