T-shirt reading "WE KILL THE GYPSIES" for sale online by Zazzle
At 15:12 CET today the Czech edition of news server Romea.cz reported that the German-language pages of the Zazzle online retailer were offering a T-shirt reading "GYPSY HUNTER BADGE - WE KILL THE GYPSIES". Zazzle is one of the biggest, must progressive firms in its field, offering customers the opportunity to create their own logos for placement on T-shirts or other items and then to sell their creations through the firm's online store.
There are probably problems with controlling what turns up on the firm's website in terms of customer designs. News server Romea.cz sent questions to the media department of Zazzle about the T-shirt and their control process which have yet to be answered.
Zazzle was established in 1999 and has won many awards. It has been invested in by John Doerr, a Google investor and member of a panel of independent experts who advises US President Barack Obama and by Ram Shriram, another Google investor and manager.
At approximately 17:30 CET the T-shirt disappeared from the website. We do not know to what degree the questions sent to Zazzle by news server Romea.cz affected this because we have yet to receive a response from the retailer.
