Zara pepe the frog

Uh oh...

It seems that everyone is hating on high street store Zara right now and it’s for a bit of a surprising reason. 

You might remember that the brand came under fire a few years back for a certain striped t-shirt which many thought resembled that of a Star of David badge.

Well, now, shoppers are furious with the store after they released a denim skirt with a painted frog on it - a frog which looked a lot like Pepe The Frog… a meme which was turned into a hate symbol used by white supremacists. 

The denim skirt, complete with two painted on frogs, appeared on the website with a whole load of other painted denim. 

Many other designs were inoffensive with denim jackets emblazoned with ‘nope’ and a couple of painted on tigers. You know, the normal. 

But then there was Pepe. A frog that looked a lot like the particular frog which was first created by Matt Furie in 2005, which was later used by hate groups and classified as a hate symbol in September by the Anti-Defmation League due to its racist and anti-Semitic usage. 

Naturally, Twitter responded and people were not happy.
