Zara Pulls Baby Top from Stores Due to Accidental Holocaust Imagery

Spanish clothing store Zara has removed a line of baby tops after anybody with eyes critics noted its sheriff star insignia looked a whole lot like the yellow Star of David many European Jews were forced to wear as identification by the Nazis.

“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,” a Zara spokesperson said Wednesday.

Zara apologized in multiple languages on Twitter as well:

In 2007 Zara removed a handbag from its stores after it discovered the embroidered pattern contained swastikas.
