Amazon pulls ‘Daddy’s Little Slut’ T-shirt for little girls after complaints

The tech giant Amazon was forced to intervene after outrage erupted this week over a controversial children’s t-shirt that contained the words “Daddy’s Little Slut.”

“The product was being sold by third party retailer Onlybabycare, which sells other children’s apparel items via the retailer, such as Taco Bell slogan tees and a hat bearing the words: ‘Black guns matter,’” The Independent reported.

“The ‘Daddy’s little slut’ T-shirt had been on the website since June 2019 and was on sale for half its original price at $18 (£14). The product description read that the top was ‘suitable’ for various occasions, including ‘playing outside, birthday party, baby shower, baptism, wedding, baby photography, daily wear, family day.’”

The since-removed product was reportedly listed as a “unisex” garment suitable for “little girls or boys,” though clearly the product page contained an image of a girl, not a boy.

A cursory glance through Onlybabycare’s Amazon store conducted Saturday afternoon revealed a slew of other children’s clothing and gear — many of the products centered on practically every theme imaginable, from burgers and ice cream to hippies, weightlifting, spiders, the U.K. and more.

The evidence suggest the manufacturer is willing to capitalize on practically everything, including the sexualization of children and normalization of child abuse.

Or at least that’s how the rest of the world has interpreted both its decision to sell a children’s t-shirt with the words “Daddy’s Little Slut” on it, and Amazon’s decision to allow it to sell this provocative shirt in the first place.
