Earlier we told you Zara got trolled for its “Loving your curves” campaign where the picture of two skinny girls was featured and it was captioned as ‘Love your curves’ where curves were nowhere to be seen.
Then the outraged Twitterati slammed Zara for this and now they have another reason to slam this high street fashion brand.
So apparently, Zara is getting dragged on Twitter for selling a skirt featuring ‘Pepe The Frog’, an internet meme which has been adopted by neo-Nazis and serves as an icon of the white nationalist alt-right movement.
The denim skirt which features a Pepe like appliqué has been taken down from Zara’s website after the controversy.
Pepe The Frog was created by cartoonist Matt Furie in 2005 as a chilled out, friendly frog who led a simple life in a comic book. But it was eventually appropriated by trolls and hate groups online and was officially declared a hate symbol by the Anti-Defamation League in September 2016.
When it came into the eyes of twitterati, they started posting against it. Check it out.
Zara is really out there trying to sell a P*pe the frog skirt, apparently unaware (?) of its current implications https://t.co/gQ3bimsdg2

Anyone who’s surprised about Zara’s Pepe the frog skirt probably doesn’t remember this. I do. pic.twitter.com/GDaWmXSJng

iKarmik says, well this incident has seriously reminded us of Kendal Jenner’s controversial Pepsi advertisement. And Zara, this is the second time you’ve been slammed for your design; so maybe you should consider doing a bit of research first before introducing your appliqué clothes into the internet market.
