All eyes are on Zara right now as controversy swirls around a children’s top that was removed from stores earlier this morning. Social media users have been buzzing over a white and blue striped shirt that features a yellow “Sheriff” star, likening it to the uniform Jewish prisoners wore in concentration camps during the second world war.

The star featured on the shirt had the word “sheriff” written across it, but it was not completely visible unless users zoomed into the image on the Spanish retailer’s website. According to the shirt was produced in Turkey and was available in Zara’s Israeli, French, Albanian and Swedish online stores. It has since been removed and Zara has reached out to social media users across the globe on Twitter to express their remorse.
