Remember that time Urban Outfitters was criticized for selling a shirt with a patch resembling the Star Of David, similar to the one Jewish people were forced to wear under Hitler's reign in Nazi Germany?
Well, apparently Zara doesn't remember that incident, because they recently tried to sell a shirt with a comparable patch.
Unfortunately, Zara's version was much, much worse because the six-pointed star was yellow and sewn onto blue and white striped fabric — which just happens to make the shirt look almost identical to the uniforms Jewish prisoners had to wear in WWII concentration camps.
Obviously customers were outraged, but Zara was quick to respond via Twitter:
It's still flabbergasting that the shirt made it to stores in the first place, but at least Zara's promptness in resolving the matter is admirable!
You can see a photo of the shirt in question (above), and compare it photos of actual concentration camp uniforms and badges HERE.
