Zara Tries To Sell Anti-Semitic Stuff Again, Apologizes Again

August 28, 2014: It's not the first time they have done this.

Anti Semitic Stuff

Spanish clothing line Zara is being accused of anti-Semitism after its stores were found selling shirts bearing disturbing resemblance to the uniforms Jews were forced to wear during the Holocaust.

The controversial item was produced in Turkey and available in the retailer’s Israeli, French, Albanian and Swedish online stores, according to Metro reported that the shirts were also being sold in the U.K., for children up to the age of 3.

After a photo from Zara’s website went viral, a scorching round of criticism was set off. People criticized the manufacturer for not noticing the obvious similarities between the shirt and the uniform Jews were forced to wear at the Nazi concentration camps during World War II.

Anti-Semitic Stuff

Zara issued not just one but several apologies in different languages, explaining it was an unintentional mistake and insisting that the product was designed after cowboy sheriffs of the Old West.

But people were furious and so was their reaction:

Consequently, the garment was pulled from the stores and websites by Wednesday morning. A link to the shirt now displays a message saying the item is no longer available and redirects shoppers to a white-and-blue striped children’s shirt.

The outrage, however, is refusing to die down because people are fed up of Zara’s “unintentional” anti-Semitic products. In 2007, they were forced to remove a handbag that featured swastikas in its embroidery.
