ETSY, the United States’ online shopping platform, has stopped selling t-shirts with images of people falling from the plane departing from the Afghan Hamid Karzai Airport in Kabul.
Social media users have reacted to the t-shirts offered for sale, saying that shopping sites are “laughing at the dead” and “trying to profit from their suffering.” Many users have described the t-shirts named “Kabil Jumping Club 2021” (Accept Skydiving Club Est. 2021) as “disgusting”. ETSY stopped selling t-shirts online after the backlash. Users have encountered the warning “Sorry, this product and store are currently unavailable” on the platform’s website.
YOUTUBE ALSO PROHIBITED
However, despite the reactions, the sale of the T-shirts in question continues on the Singapore-based merchant site “TShirtAtLowPrice.com”. The statement on promoting the product on the shopping site included the following statements: “We pray for the people of Afghanistan and that the two fallen from the plane may rest in peace. The t-shirt isn’t exactly funny, it has its own political significance, but ultimately it depends on what you think about it. According to the New York Post, the site posted a 19-second Youtube video promoting the t-shirts. However, the video was removed by YouTube for “violating harassment and bullying rules.”
After the Taliban took control of the country, Afghans who wanted to leave the country climbed the wing and undercarriage of the evacuation plane that took off from Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul. The footage of the moments when two people fell from the plane sparked outrage in public opinion around the world.
