Walmart is under fire after its website offered T-shirts from third-party sellers with "IMPEACH 45" emblazoned across the front in big capital letters - a call to bring down the 45th USA president, Donald Trump. There's also mens and juniors shirts that read "45 You're Fired", using Trump's facing line from his former show "The Apprentice". Since Walmart also sells pro-Trump clothing items, perhaps these t-shirts will be justified as a fair and balanced approach by the retailer.

More than half of the stuff Amazon sold in 2017 came from third-party sellers, rather than Amazon itself, and Walmart saw its sales jump after it overhauled its marketplace. Walmart hasn't responded to media inquiries seeking a response to the boycott threats.

Several people on Twitter called Walmart out for selling the T-Shirts and said on Twitter that they plan to join the Walmart boycott.

To be fair, however, Yahoo Lifestyle points out that Walmart has pulled other merchandise on similar grounds. "We're removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies".
