I have never heard of the blog Bent Corner before, but I can imagine it spikes its traffic at the moment. The blog has discovered a t-shirt at Walmart looking just like the logo of German SS Division Totenkopf (that German word that sounds so scary translates to ‘€œSkull’€?, sort of). Perhaps not such a smart thing to do, but in Walmarts’ defense you have to note that this skull isn’€™t widely known as a Nazi symbol.
What do Walmart do then? Well, they e-mail every blog that covers the story and promises to pull the t-shirts in a day or two, since they’€™re a big organization. Apparently it isn’€™t going fast enough, since Bent Corner has a follow-up post.
Also, check out the coverage over at The Consumerist.
