via The Wrap, '“The Walking Dead” has once again caused an uproar, and this time it’s not over onscreen gore or a shocking character death.
A “Walking Dead” T-shirt has been removed for sale by a British clothing retailer, after a complaint that the shirt was “racist” and “fantastically offensive.”
The shirt in question bore the image of a baseball bat and the message “Eeny Meeny Miny Moe” — a reference to a scene from the AMC zombie drama in which Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is deciding who in the protagonist group to kill.
In the scene, Negan continues the phrase with, “Catch a tiger by his toe” though, historically the rhyme had employed the N-word rather than the word “tiger.”'
