(CNN) — An online retailer tried to “reclaim” the swastika by creating colorful t-shirts to promote peace, but ended up pulling the shirts after weeks of backlash.
The shirts were produced by KA Design and sold on the Teespring website. In a Facebook video published on July 12, KA Design introduced the t-shirt line with much criticism.

A few weeks after the initial launch, Teespring said it pulled the shirts due to “content issues.”
KA design also released a statement on its Facebook page, urging people not to blame Teespring and telling critics to “leave all the hate to us.”
