Insider’s search of Walmart’s online listings on Wednesday showed that more than a dozen shirt designs in different colors, all bearing the coded insult against President Joe Biden, were being sold on the site. The products included a $19.99 women’s t-shirt with an image of the president eating ice cream, along with the words “Merry Christmas” and “Let’s Go Brandon.” Also on sale was a $21.99 long-sleeved shirt with the American flag and the slogan.

While not an epithet per se, the phrase “Let’s Go Brandon” has made its way into popular culture and been used as a censor-friendly replacement for the phrase “Fuck Joe Biden.”

Most of the ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ shirts listed on Walmart’s site were being sold and produced by apparel-maker Wild Bobby, a US-based apparel store. Insider saw that Wild Bobby’s website currently lists 64 items emblazoned with the slogan, including sweaters with former President Donald Trump’s face on them.

But Wild Bobby also sells apparel on the other end of the political spectrum, including a tee emblazoned with the image of former Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Black Lives Matter-sloganed tees.

Insider has reached out to Wild Bobby for comment.

A Walmart spokesperson told Insider that the “Let’s Go Brandon” items are being removed from its online store.

“Like other major online retailers, we operate an online marketplace that allows outside third-party sellers to offer merchandise to customers through our eCommerce platform,” the spokesperson said. “We have reviewed these third-party marketplace products and they will be removed because they do not comply with our policies.”
