#BoycottWalmart Campaign Starts Due to “Impeach” Jersey
Walmart was recently denounced by many of Trump’s supporters because it seemed to be selling apparel and clothing with the words “Impeach Trump”. People started going on twitter to start the hashtag #BoycottWalmart in an effort to stop the wrong that is apparently occurring.
Undoubtedly, the United states of America seems to be clearly divided along the lines of Trump supporters and haters, with both as passionate as can be. No one is backing down and compromising on their beliefs. Now, companies like Walmart are also on the bandwagon, with their own views and beliefs.
It’s clear whose side Walmart is on but is it too extreme selling shirts with the words that incites practical hatred towards the president of the country? Should companies stay neutral about the political differences that are occurring in the country?
1 Twitter Weighs in on the Walmart Issue
Ryan Fourner was the first one to find out that this was happening and he shared his discomfort through Twitter, talking about how wrong it is;
.@walmart why are you selling Impeach 45 baby clothes on your website?????

Totally sick of retail companies that feel compelled to commercialize their half a#s political opinions while trying to get me to spend my money in their half a#s store. Never again at #BoycottWalmart

And that is why I have chosen to #boycottWalmart they don’t care for their employees or the communities they serve. The only thing they care about is the bottom line and when we all take that away, maybe, just maybe they will start caring. #boycottWallmart

I didn't realize how to the left Walmart was and that's your right but when you start selling merchandise to impeach our president than that's over the top and I won't support you! #boycottwalmart

3 Those Against the Boycott Walmart Campaign
But soon, the people against Trump started tweeting against this campaign calling it pointless and hypocritical. People who are politically towards the left talk about how Trump sold “Make America Great Again” caps that hinted at a white supremacist ideology during the election. They think that if Trump supporters can do things like these, why can’t people who oppose Trump do as well?
The following tweets are against the Boycott Walmart campaign
In this economy? Fuck outta here!
Besides, you don't want to boycott them for selling guns and ammo or how they treat their employees like shit. You wanna do it over a shirt?
Trump Supporters are a whole different level of dumb. I have to laugh at you.

It makes ZERO sense for Trump-lovers to boycott Walmart for selling 'Impeach 45' apparel when they also sell 'Make America Great Again' items — which to the overwhelming majority of Americans is akin to selling
hats and T-shirts emblazoned with a Nazi swastika. #BoycottWalmart

I find it hilarious that Trump Supporters are calling for a boycott of Walmart over the fact they sell “Impeach 45” t-shirts, yet they are perfectly fine with Walmart selling “Hillary for Prison” T-Shirts. It’s called Freedom of Speech! Don’t #BoycottWalmart.#ShopWalmart! pic.twitter.com/JyE0xMSTWR

Some are talking about the fact that Walmart as a company has their own problems and it’s rather stupid to start boycotting it over a jersey.
I saw #BoycottWalmart and thought it's because their employees don't make enough money to live and have to get public assistance or because of their union busting tactics – or the fact they force employees to work on Thanksgiving.
Nope. Trump supporters are upset over a jersey

A lot of people clearly have a lot to say on the matter, with differing views of opinions. Let’s see how Walmart handles this!
