Zara’s Twitter timeline was flooded with complaints yesterday over a striped shirt featuring a yellow star on the front.

People across the world took to Twitter to point out that the shirt was similar to the uniform worn by Jewish prisoners in concentration camps during the second world war.

The striped “sheriff” T-shirt, for children aged three months to three years, had white and blue stripes and a six-pointed yellow star.

 

 

Zara removed the T-shirt from all its stores and apologised to customers.

A spokesperson for Zara’s parent company Inditex said: “The item in question has now been removed from all Zara stores and Zara.com.

“The garment was inspired by the classic Western films, but we now recognise that the design could be seen as insensitive and apologise sincerely for any offence caused to our customers.”
