Walmart Nazi Tshirt Watch: Day 56

Fifty-six days after t-shirts bearing Nazi insignia were discovered in Walmart, the retailer has yet to remove them from all their stores, despite promises to do so within days. Rahnee in Americus Georgia writes:

    “I have been following your Nazi T-shirt story ever since it broke close to two months ago. Today while my wife and I were walking off lunch at our local Wal-Mart I decided to have a look at the shirts put on clearance after the holidays. While looking through a rack of shirts I remembered the Nazi T-shirt story on and decided to see for myself if our local store had any of these T’s. I was delighted to find one. I have attached a photo that my wife took of shirt and me in Wal-Mart today with the date at the bottom. It was the only one so I planned carefully how I would be able to buy it. I took a similar shirt to the checkout with me knowing the computer would say, “Sale not allowed”. After the clerk tried several times to ring the shirt up she finally scanned the similar shirt as a comparable item. The similar shirt was actually on clearance and I was able to get the Nazi T for $5.”
