Oh no, yet another clothing retailer offending customers with poorly thought out apparel!
Old Navy is experiencing extreme backlash over a series of tees they were selling in their toddlers section. The shirt bares the words "Young Aspiring Artist," but the word "Artist" is crossed out and replaced with either "President" or "Astronaut."

Shoppers expressed their frustrations over the garment on Twitter:
Being an artist is worth aspiring to, not crossing off. #oldnavy #dontcrossoffartist #youngaspiringartist pic.twitter.com/Ic0qpQYovT— The Pink Paperdoll (@abbie_katrina) December 29, 2015

Old Navy spokesperson Debbie Felix has since responded to the controversy. "At Old Navy we take our responsibility to our customers seriously. We would never intentionally offend anyone, and we are sorry if that has been the case," she said in a statement.
"With this particular tee, as a result of customer feedback, we have decided to discontinue the design and will work to remove the item from our stores."
Do you find the tee disrespectful?
