Speaks for itself: Amazon users are furious that the product is being sold and called the tops 'disgusting'
Amazon has removed a T-shirt range bearing sickening messages about sex crime and violence towards women.
The T-shirts pulled from sale by the online retailer included phrases like Keep Calm And Rape A Lot, Keep Calm And Punch Her, Keep Calm And Grope On, Keep Calm and Choke Her, Keep Calm and Knife Her and Keep Calm And Kill Her.
The U.S. firm that makes the shirts, Solid Gold Bomb, blamed a ‘computer’ error for the offensive slogans.
But Tory MP Caroline Dinenage said: ‘These are ridiculous, mindless products for anybody to attempt to sell. It is absurd to say they were manufactured in error.’
A flood of complaints on social-networking websites prompted the decision by Amazon.
Solid Gold Bomb sold the short-sleeved t-shirts for between £15 and £17 on the warehouse website.
But potential customers were 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'.
But on Solid Gold Bomb's Facebook page, someone wrote under the company name that they had 'no idea' that the message was printed and said it had been computer generated.
Founder Michael Fowler said: 'No words can express how I feel about what has occurred and in no way do I condone or promote this serious issue.
Vile: T-shirts with slogans saying Keep Calm and Knife Her and Keep Calm and Hit Her were still on Amazon today, but could not be ordered

Offensive T shirts pulled from Amazon. Good work, people who complained!
A friend sent me this information. Very disturbing. I'm glad to hear the shirts were taken down right away and can no longer be ordered. Women are definitely not going to take it anymore. THAT'S the great news I'm seeing from this.
