New York, NY (AHN) - Macy's department store is no longer selling a T-shirt that might offend some members of the Hispanic community.
The company released T-shirts aimed at the Latina community looking to send a message via fashion. The shirts had "Brown Is The New White" branded across the front and were not taken as light heartedly as the store hoped.
The items have since been removed from the shelves of Macy's department stores and the company has released a statement apologizing for possibly offending the public.
They said, "We are constantly looking for unique and differentiated merchandise that will resonate with our customers as hip, current and trendy. We also continue to work in developing business relationships with minority vendors to serve the growing diverse customer base. We apologize if customers have found some of the merchandise offensive and have removed the style that they found objectionable."
