Target under fire for "Trophy" tee...

Uh oh....Target is in the news again, and not in a good way. The Bullseye is under fire for selling this cheeky t-shirt (shown) which has sparked a backlash online, as many customers are claiming the top is offensive to women.

The black shirt - which has the word “trophy” in bold white letters across the front and costs $12.99 - has many folks slamming the retailer for treating women and girls as objects. A number of customers have been posting photos of the T-shirt, which some say they spotted in the junior’s section, on social media, publicly criticizing what they say is a sexist move on Target’s part. While the shirt has reportedly been on sale since June, it’s only recently gained steam on social media, and one woman has even started a petition on Change.org demanding that Target stop selling the shirt.

They even call this shirt "trophy wife" graphic tee. I little common sense Target would be nice.
