The retailer (WMT, +0.98%) is facing calls for a boycott after supporters of President Donald Trump discovered a shirt for sale readying "Impeach 45".

Walmart is once again under fire for a shirt available on its Website.

Old Glory, which was founded in 1969 and makes its T-shirts in Westbrook, Conn., received "a couple thousand" orders of the impeachment apparel on Tuesday alone, accounting for about half of the day's sales, Morelli said.

People on social media lashed out to show their discontent with Walmart selling the political merchandise.

A Walmart spokeswoman did not return a request for comment.

"These items were sold by third party sellers on our open marketplace, and were not offered directly by Walmart", a spokesperson told the BBC on Tuesday.

It's not the first time Walmart has caused a stir. The continued sale of the clothing items and whether or not a widespread boycott of Walmart catches on has not yet been determined. "Tree. Journalist. SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED" was listed on its website through an outside company.

"As a fierce proponent of the First Amendment that is politically nonpartisan, we recognize Walmart's right to sell the T-Shirts, and the right of consumers to purchase and wear them", the group's executive director Dan Shelley wrote in his letter to the retailer.

To be fair, however, Yahoo Lifestyle points out that Walmart has pulled other merchandise on similar grounds.
