How despicable is this for a t-shirt?

A company is selling t-shirts with the slogan ‘Keep Calm And Rape Them’ emblazoned across the chest on Amazon.

The online clothing store, Solid Gold Bomb, sells the short-sleeved t-shirts for between £15 and £17 on the warehouse website.

But potential customers are clearly not willing to buy the deeply offensive t-shirts, slamming both Amazon and the clothes shop, which has its headquarters in the UK.

Users branded the shop and its message ‘disgusting’ and ‘disturbing’.

The brightly-coloured tops’ message are a twist on the ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ morale-boosting slogan used in World War II by the British Government.

The message has experienced a boom in popularity in recent years, and sparked a trend in shops producing products such as tea-towels, posters and cushions, bearing the slogan, or a play on it.

Solid Gold Bomb, who produce the t-shirts, was created and launched from Melbourne, Australia, and describes itself as a ‘small global t-shirt company’.

They write on their website about their range: ‘We managed to list our Keep Calm and Carry On parody series on the site.

‘Bake On, Beat On and Teach On are Proving Very Popular! Rock On!’
