Amazon customers have expressed their disgust at a number of ‘Blue Lives Murder’ t-shirts for sale on their platform.
An anonymous police response sergeant took to Twitter to ask his followers to encourage the online store to remove the incendiary products.
The products are offered by a number of companies, including Graphic Apparel Co., Situen, iRockstar Design and Black History Afrocentric Shirts Co. They t-shirts cost in the region of £17 to buy and are available on Prime.
One follower contacted Amazon customer services via their live chat feature. A representative – named Arsh – replied: “I am really sorry about this issue. we are aware about this and already raised this issue with our catalog team that this particular is offensive and they must remove that from our website.
“We respect and vanue all the cops and we do not intend to promote such things.
“I have escalated this issue again and it will be removed as soon as possible from our website.”
