Zara Yanks Pepe The Frog Lookalike From Website

Fashion retailer Zara has pulled a skirt from its website amid a torrent of articles suggesting that the skirt bore an image resembling Pepe the Frog.

Pepe, an internet meme co-opted by the so-called “alt-right” last year, has become a widely-recognized symbol of white supremacy. The frog on the Zara skirt bears a passing resemblance to the racist logo.

A Twitter user named meagan was the first to point out the resemblance.

Paper Magazine reported that the skirt had apparently been pulled from Zara’s website.

There years ago, the Spanish company apologized for selling a shirt that looked like a concentration camp uniform.
