Jeffy Fisher recently shared an irritating story concerning one of his favorite TV shows, AMC's "The Walking Dead."
Apparently, one individual in the U.K. was offended by a licensed T-shirt on sale at retail chain Primark and proceeded to pressure them to remove it. The customer, who called the shirt "racist" and "fantastically offensive," was joined by allies on the internet who decried the depiction of a barbed-wire-wrapped baseball bat alongside the phrase "Eeny Meeny Miny Moe."
The shirt refers to a dramatic moment in the show's most recent season when a bat-wielding psychopath is selecting which protagonist to murder, a moment famously spoofed by comedian Dave Chappelle on NBC's "Saturday Night Live."
Liberals often allege that the nursery rhyme referenced by the shirt is racist, leading to the outcry against Primark for carrying this particular piece of licensed merchandise. The store swiftly pulled the shirt from its shelves.
The actor who played the character in question on the show has reacted with disgust to the news, implying that those who objected to the design are "stupid."
