Police Union Asks Amazon To Pull Pro-Black Lives Matter Shirt
The nation's largest police union said the phrase "Bulletproof: Black Lives Matter" is offensive.
The country's biggest police union wants Amazon to stop selling what it calls an offensive shirt supporting Black Lives Matter.
The apparel simply says "Bulletproof: Black Lives Matter." The Fraternal Order of Police said it wasn't opposed to the shirt because it's pro-Black Lives Matter, but took issue with the word "bulletproof."
The group's executive director told CNN, "The bulletproof thing goes to the new assertiveness of some violence prone individuals to take action directly against police."
In July, five Dallas police officers were killed by a sniper while providing security at a Black Lives Matter rally.
Walmart pulled a shirt with the same message after a similar complaint. The shirt was offered on its website through a third-party retailer.
This puts Amazon in a tough situation. The police union made it clear it wants the shirt taken down but pulling the shirt could upset Black Lives Matter supporters.
Amazon declined to comment on the request. As of Saturday afternoon, the shirts were still available on the site.
