Hey, Zara, you need more people. Earlier this month, you made us go, “Wait what?” after shoppers tipped the internet off to your “White is the new black” T-shirts. And now, this.
Today, the fast-fashion retailer is under fire once again after selling a T-shirt with a design similar to that of uniforms worn by Holocaust prisoners during World War II.
Fashionista reports they were tipped off to the striped children’s shirt after a reader sent in an image of it being sold on the site. On it is a large yellow star, which customers said looked more like the badge Jewish people were forced to wear in concentration camps than what Zara intended it to be, a sheriff’s badge. A closer look at the image does, however, show the word “Sheriff” laser-cut across the star, Fashionista points out.
