Swastika ring on Sears.com prompts social media outrage Live


Amazon.com and Sears, through a third party seller, advertised a new "punk rock" swastika ring for men. Between Concentration camp shirts from ZARA, and Swastika rings from Sears, anti-Semitism is disturbingly "in-style." We wish this was a joke. UPDATE: Sears has issued an apology for the third party who advertised this ring on their website. Both Amazon and Sears have since removed the item.

The ring was not posted by Sears, but by independent third-party sellers on Sears Marketplace. All Marketplace Sellers must accept our seller agreement terms in order to sell their items on sears.com and part of that agreement includes an understanding that certain offensive items may not be listed. If a problem occurs, we take appropriate action. The ring has not been purchasable since this morning and we are in the process of completely removing the items from our site.Searsvia Facebook at 9:48 PM yesterday
