Walmart pulls "Rope. Tree. Journalist." T-shirt

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Walmart has pulled a T-shirt offered by an outside seller from its online store after a journalist advocacy group told the retailer it found the shirt threatening.
The shirt, listed on through a third-party seller, said: "Rope. Tree. Journalist. SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED."
"This item was sold by a third-party seller on our marketplace and clearly violates our policy," Walmart said. "We removed it as soon as it was brought to our attention, and are conducting a thorough review of the seller's assortment."
The Radio Television Digital News Association said Walmart notified it about five hours after its complaint that the shirt was being removed.
