Bloomingdale's Pulls Its 'Fake News' T-Shirt After a Triggered Journalist Complains

Bloomingdale's department store actually pulled a t-shirt from its fashion lineup after one journalist found herself triggered by a piece of fabric hanging on a mannequin.

Allison Kaden, who works for PIX11 in New York, according to her Twitter bio, tweeted a photo of Bloomingdale’s “Fake News” shirt at a store Monday, complaining that the item “delegitimizes hard working journalists who bring REAL news to their communties (sic).”
 

Hey @Bloomingdales, this isn’t funny or fashionable. It further delegitimizes hard working journalists who bring REAL news to their communties. pic.twitter.com/NedoHMAZfs

Despite the complaint being absolutely ridiculous, Bloomingdale’s responded to Kaden’s tweet by saying they were immediately removing the shirt from their stores,

“Thank you for bringing this to our attention and we apologize for any offense we may have caused,’ Bloomingdale’s lamented. “We take this feedback very seriously and are working quickly to remove this t-shirt. Again, thank you for taking the time to alert us.”

I wonder if Allison would be okay with a "Fake Tits" shirt.

That’s a bad job, if they’re fake. They seem a bit walleyed.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.
