@TheFoooFangirl We honestly apologize, it was inspired by the sheriff’s stars from the Classic Western films and is no longer in our stores

Zara has been trending all day for all the wrong reasons.
The retailer faced swift backlash to a striped children’s shirt decorated with a yellow star that looks like the uniforms worn in concentration camps during the Holocaust.
The company quickly took to Twitter to apologize individually to users who criticized the company for the item. The tweet above is repeated over and over and in a number of languages on its timeline right now.
