Have you heard about this ?
or even see it in shops ? Was this a huge deal in your countries ? Or is it just in France ? We are pretty sensitive when it comes to this part of History...

La firme espagnole a suscité l'indignation en proposant un tee-shirt pour enfants rayé et frappé d'une étoile jaune. Celle d'un "shérif", selon la marque.

Voici un "bad buzz" dont la marque Zara se serait bien passée. La marque espagnole a en effet mis en vente un article dénommé "tee-shirt double face shérif", dont la ressemblance avec les costumes des prisonniers juifs des camps nazis d'extermination est plus que troublante.

Sous la pression des internautes, la firme a retiré mercredi le tee-shirt "shérif" de son catalogue. L'objectif : éteindre au plus tôt l'incendie suscité par cette polémique sur Twitter et sur la page Facebook de la marque. Sur Twitter, les critiques indignées n'ont pas manqué d'affluer et continuent toujours à se propager sur la Toile.

Zara avait déjà par le passé subi une vague d'indignation en raison de la présence d'une croix gammée sur un sac de sa collection. La marque s'était défendue en précisant qu'il s'agissait d'un "svastika indien".

Here's a "bad buzz" whose Zara could well have done without. The Spanish brand has indeed put on sale an article called "double sided tee sheriff" whose resemblance to the costumes of Jewish prisoners of Nazi extermination camps is more than disturbing. Under pressure from the Internet, the firm withdrew Wednesday shirt "sheriff" in its catalog. The goal is to extinguish the fire as soon aroused by this controversy on Twitter and on the Facebook page of the brand. On Twitter, outraged critics were quick to pour in and still continue to spread across the web. Zara had in the past suffered a wave of indignation because of the presence of a swastika on a bag of his collection. The brand was defended stating that it was an "Indian swastika."

Yep, huge deal here as well in the Netherlands. I have no idea whether or not it was available in any Dutch stores or the webshop at some point here, but it definetly got all the media buzzing. It's hard to imagine that no one noticed the aweful similarity at some point during the design process.

it was in the media in the US as well. it is good that they recalled it. i would be curious as to read the entire statement zara put out.

the one positive thing about this is that this seems to be an isolated incident unlike H&M and Walmart...
