Online retailer Zazzle removes T-shirt branded: ‘At Least I’m Not Jewish’

American clothes store apologises for hateful user-designed product which consumers complained about online

An American online clothes retailer has withdrawn a $25 T-shirt splashed with the words ‘At Least I’m Not Jewish’ and apologised for any offence caused.

Zazzle pulled its inflammatory user-designed product on Sunday, saying it “does not tolerate or accept hate on our site,” after an outcry from Jewish consumers who accused the company of “rocking antisemitism like it’s the hottest look”.

“When a product is brought to our attention that violates our terms of service, such as the shirt you referenced, we take swift action to have the product removed.”
