This isn't the first time Walmart has encountered backlash for selling political items.

Walmart is catching fire on social media after shoppers caught sight of a T-shirt being sold through its third-party marketplace that says "Impeach 45", referring to President Donald Trump.

The items, sold by third-party seller Old Glory, have since been removed from the website.

Walmart has gotten in trouble before for its lack of oversight on its online platform. The availability of the apparel sparked a "boycott Walmart" campaign in support of Trump.

Walmart is once again under fire for a shirt available on its Website.

On June 27, Walmart announced that it was introducing a 3D virtual shopping tour on its website, as the retailer pours billions of dollars into beefing up its e-commerce business. Third-party sellers can sign up to advertise products on Walmart's website, and the retail giant gets a commission on each sale. The site also sells several different versions of "Hillary for Prison" shirts. Alice Walton donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to a fund supporting Clinton in the 2016 election cycle, but Clinton has rejected her family's support in the past.

The T-shirts weren't being sold by Walmart itself, but by third-party sellers including Old Glory and Teespring Inc.

When News4Jax searched the link the apparel was found on, it appeared to have been taken down.

Last November, Walmart drew ire over a shirt on its site that sported the phrase "Rope".

One Twitter user called for Walmart to "clean up" its act, saying as a "pro American company it is wrong to politicise and be anti-US President with any product".
