Company Sells Shirt Nearly Identical To Jewish Concentration Camp Uniforms

The company that got in trouble for selling purses with swastikas on them has now apologized for selling kids pajamas that look exactly like the uniforms Jews wore in Nazi concentration camps.

Here’s a shirt Spanish retailer Zara tried to sell recently:

Here’s what the actual uniforms that many Jews wore at Nazi concentration camps looked like:

Zara apologized in a statement Wednesday, saying the shirt was part of a Cowboy Collection for babies, and was inspired by sheriff’s in Wild West movies. Not to worry, the company added, the item “will be removed from shelves across the world and exterminated.”

Exterminated? Really?

In 2007, Zara apologized for selling this handbag, which features four green swastikas in each corner, and removed it from all stores.
