Clothier Pulls Pepe the Frog Skirt After Complaints

THREE CHEERS FOR PEPE. BOO TO LIBERAL FROGPHOBIA.

New York Mag

When it comes to offensive actions, Zara hasn’t had the best track record. Back in 2014 there was that unfortunate decision to put a yellow star on a striped T-shirt, which drew comparisons to what Jewish citizens were forced to wear during Nazi occupation. Then in 2015, employees were fired for asking a woman to remove her headscarf before entering a store outside of Paris. Today, some keen-eyed shoppers noticed another peculiar symbol on the fast-fashion website: Pepe the Frog.

Zara added the design on a shredded denim skirt, as a part of its “Festival Edition” that also featured a jean jacket with a peacock and overalls with a cougar among other designs. Perhaps they didn’t realize that the smug cartoon frog has become a synonym for the alt-right and the Anti-Defamation League declared it a hate symbol last year? It’s since been pulled from the site but it goes to show — no good ever comes out of shopping the festival-fashion section.

The company apologized for the shirt on the right in 2014. The shirt on the left is the original.

  1. The clothier name is Zara. I know that the Arabic word for flower is “zahara”, so maybe there is something there behind the scenes. Whatever. As long as it pisses-off the jews, libtards, and SJW’s, I am happy.
