Walmart recently had to pull a line of shirts for an “accidental” swear word. In a now-viral Tweet, a user noticed the shirt with the bawdy word embedded and posted it on Twitter, garnering more than 2.5 million views.
To be fair, the naughty shirt was only available in Canada, and for only five dollars, but if you got one you can bet someone will pay your asking price for a piece of viral internet history. Check out the naughty details
Walmart has removed a certain T-shirt from its stores after a customer noticed that the makers had accidentally emblazoned it with a very rude word.
The unintentionally controversial couture came to light via a tweet that has amassed over 2.5 million views.
“I need this shirt before Walmart realizes what they have done. Find the hidden word,” quipped the poster along with a pic of the problematic green garment in question.

It’s not just a shirt, it is a word search! Five dollars is a bargain for a “George” brand Walmart shirt, but add in the entertainment value and it is priceless! So what did the shirt say? I can’t tell you but the NY Post gives a hint:
At a glance, the T-shirt seems rather innocuous: It sports a typical pro-recycling slogan with the letters “RE” in upper case, followed by the four lower-case suffixes “cycle,” “use,” “new” and “think.”
However, upon closer inspection, it becomes apparent that the first letters of each word inadvertently spell the word “c–t.”
Walmart was quick to scrap the accidentally profane shirt from shelves.
“This was not intentional, and the T-shirt has been removed,” a spokesperson for the retail giant told Newsweek.
Recycling has never been so much fun! Is that how they recycle in Canada? Because if so, I want to party with them! Turns out, it likely wasn’t intentional and Walmart pulled the saucy shirts before they got canceled.
Of course, it could be argued that in certain areas the average Walmart shopper wouldn’t be able to read the shirt and certainly doesn’t recycle, but at the five-dollar price point might have picked up a couple of dirty shirts for the kiddos.
Thankfully Walmart was all over it before any more Canadians were corrupted by American swear words.
The T-shirt, which was created by the Walmart-owned George fashion brand, had reportedly only been available in Canadian outlets, where it was on sale for $5.
While the eco-conscious couture may have been banned from brick and mortar, it is reportedly sold on Amazon and elsewhere for around $20.
The sophomoric social media masses had a field day with the incognito C-word.
“Finally. The perfect shirt,” guffawed one viewer, while another wrote, “Laughed out loud when I spotted the hidden word. Now I want that tee shirt too. ;).”
“So THIS is why C U Next Tuesday was trending,” marveled another, referencing another acronym for the same dirty word.
Some social media conspiracy theorists thought the T-shirt slogan was deliberate, like a subliminal swear word.
“What’s the over/under that whoever designed that shirt knew exactly what they were doing?” wondered one.
I’m guessing someone, somewhere spotted the curse word on the shirt and giggled, then moved it on down the line. Of course, considering it is a Walmart brand shirt, it was probably made in a factory in Honduras by children that can’t read anyway. That’s an article for another time. Until then, hop online and get your bawdy recycling shirt while they last!
