(TPM) – Amazon has removed children’s clothing items that contain explicit sexual messages.
CBC News reports that the items, which were sold by third-party sellers, included t-shirts and other clothing items that showed the message “I LOVE C*CK” on them, with a heart emoji.
Ads for the clothing showed children modeling the outfits.
Another item showed a girl’s dress with the message “I love c*ck” again stamped all over it.
Karolina Zikova of British Columbia contact Amazon last week over the items, saying she used Amazon’s online chat option.
he says that the employee she had contacted did not understand the scope of the complaint, and the employee said that someone from a different department would contact her.
She was not contacted by Amazon, so she turned to the press. Amazon told CBC News in an email that the item was in violation of their policy against selling children’s items with sexual references on it.
“All sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who do not will be subject to action, including potential removal of their account,” an Amazon spokesperson told CBC.
