Zara apologises for striped 'Holocaust' pyjamas with yellow star
Apparently stripes and a yellow star remind all those millions of survivors of a thing called the holocaust 70 years ago, and they have forced its removal from sale.
Obviously there's a new sheriff in town.. Or maybe they are not offended at all but jump on any passing wild west band wagon to remind us all of the terrible suffering they endured whilst at the same time softening us up for some more financial extraction...

I want to know when is the apology coming for this? I mean if you're going to take clothes bearing the symbols of murderous regimes off the market...

There's even an entire store dedicated to this animal: http://www.thechestore.com/proddetail.php?prod=3001
You won't see an apology there.
It's just incredible how people are manipulated to overlook the horrific mass murders by communists.

Yes, Breker.....it's part of the upside-down world we live in:
"Just look at us. Everything is backwards; everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the major media destroy information and religions destroy spirituality."

Zara to Destroy Shirts That Evoke Holocaust-Era Star of David
Aug 27, 2014
Zara said it will destroy striped shirts emblazoned with a yellow star after the items drew criticism across social media for resembling uniforms worn at concentration camps during the Holocaust.
The striped T-shirt with a six-pointed yellow star was on sale in several countries, including Israel, today for a few hours until the Inditex SA-owned brand realized it was a sensitive issue and decided to pull it, a company spokeswoman said. Sales of the shirt were marginal, Zara said.
The T-shirt “has been taken out of circulation due to the potential similarity with the Star of David that has been used as a yellow star patch,” the retailer said today. The company apologized for the item, whose star bore the word “sheriff” and which was meant to resemble a shirt from “classic American Westerns,” it said.
This is not the first time that Zara and its rivals have met criticism from shoppers. A swastika-decorated handbag was removed from Zara’s stores in 2007. Stockholm-based rival Hennes & Mauritz AB earlier this year pulled a tank-top with a human skull inside a Star of David. Zara is well-known for turning ideas into fashions at a breakneck pace, often taking just weeks to turn a design into clothing for sale in a shop.
“With the speed and volume of styles going through the business it is often not until the garments hit the shop floor or website that the wider, and better informed, public points” out a potential issue, Maureen Hinton, an analyst at retail consultancy Conlumino, wrote in an e-mail.
Inditex today said it “condemns and rejects any form of discrimination.”
