Amazon in trouble for selling ‘Enjoy Cocaine’ children’s clothing

The controversy comes just months after H&M received fierce backlash over their ‘coolest monkey’ hoodies.

Amazon is being criticised for selling children’s clothing that seemingly promote drug use. The collection of shirts and baby bibs, which were being sold by a third-party seller, shows a Coca-Cola slogan parody ‘Enjoy Cocaine’ written across the front.

Amusing, if it would have been on an adult. But the clothes were even modeled by toddlers and a baby.

The fashion faux pas was noticed by customer Stefanie Smith, who posted about it on Facebook. She wrote: “Admittedly, yes I was looking for a Libertines T-shirt but what the actual hell is this?”

Amazon has since removed the items and offered an explanation.

“All Marketplace sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who don’t will be subject to action including potential removal of their account,” a company spokesperson said. “The products in question are no longer available.”

It’s not the first time that Amazon has gotten in trouble with their third-party sellers. The tech giant has been called out before for advertising racist costumes and child sex dolls.
