Zara pulled a skirt from their website for 'Pepe the Frog' detail

AOL logoAOL 4/19/2017 Anna Iovine

After backlash on social media, retailer Zara has pulled one particular skirt from sale.

It came to public attention after Twitter user @meaganrosae shared her distaste on the site:

"Zara is really out there trying to sell a Pepe the frog skirt, apparently unaware (?) of its current implications," Meagan wrote.

What she's referring to is Pepe the Frog, which became a popular hate symbol of the alt-right throughout the 2016 election.

Soon after, more criticism for the skirt flourished. Within days, Zara removed the skirt from their online store.

"I'm really proud that my dumb lil tweets about the bad Pepe skirt got the product pulled from Zara," Meagan wrote, "it has no place in our closets/world."
