Fournier's message soon went viral, leading to angry consumers threatening to boycott the company.

According to the International Business Times, Ryan Fournier, chairman of the group Students for Trump, found the clothing item in the website and was the first to report it.

The apparel in question come emblazoned with phrases that read "Impeach 45" or "45 You're Fired", which directly refer to the premature termination of current U.S. President Donald Trump's term in the Oval Office. Since Walmart also sells pro-Trump clothing items, perhaps these t-shirts will be justified as a fair and balanced approach by the retailer.

Trump supporters took to Twitter with the hashtag #BoycottWalmart. We have reached out to Walmart for comment, and will update this story with more details when the company responds. A quick search on Walmart.com revealed three other companies selling Trump impeachment merchandise.

"These items were sold by third-party sellers on our open marketplace and were not offered directly by Walmart", a company spokesperson told Yahoo Lifestyle.

Old Glory, which was founded in 1969 and makes its T-shirts in Westbrook, Conn., received "a couple thousand" orders of the impeachment apparel on Tuesday alone, accounting for about half of the day's sales, Morelli said. "We're removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies".

The Washington Times reached out to Walmart Tuesday afternoon asking if the products were pulled in response to the social media pressure.
