The online store Teespring is facing backlash after tee shirts went on sale with the words “Black Women Are Trash” on them.

The shirts were reportedly made as a racist response to shirts saying “Men Are Trash,” and the slogan was printed on shirts, coffee mugs, tank tops and hoodies. Teespring took down the merchandise, which was traced back to a Twitter user named @TruCharter.
