After a contentious battle with Wal-Mart regarding “Black Lives Matter” items offered by Old Glory Merchandise via the mega retailer, they have decided to remove a controversial item from their website.
On Tuesday the company announced its decision to remove the items that have “Bulletproof” on them after they received a letter from the president of the national Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), asking them to stop selling the clothing.
The FOP is the largest police organization in the country.
While Wal-Mart has agreed to remove the particular item, it has decided to continue to sell the “Black Lives Matter” clothing line, despite a demand to remove the line was made by the FOP President, Chuck Canterbury, in his letter sent to the retailer.
Breitbart initially directed attention towards Wal-Mart, describing the “Black Lives Matter” movement as a “hate or terrorist effort.”
