CHILDREN’S clothes emblazoned with the slogan “Enjoy Cocaine” are being sold on the Amazon UK website.
The offensive message is displayed on garments designed for babies as well as T-shirts for sale on the site.
The slogan is a parody of the “Enjoy Coke” message and is even printed in the same typeface on the clothing.
But instead the solid, wavy line underneath the text of the original, the “Enjoy Coke” message is emphasised with a “powdery” line.
Shockingly, almost all of the items are modelled by children, including a bib worn by a toddler.
The products were highlighted on Amazon’s Facebook page by Stefanie (corr) Smith yesterday.
She wrote: “Admittedly, yes I was looking for a Libertines T-shirt but what the actual hell is this? WTF.”
She posted a picture of a black ‘Enjoy Cocaine Organic Baby T-shirt 12 – 18 Months’, which has a white logo and is selling for £9.99. The item is sold by third party seller “Philips T15”.
The product is modeled by a young happy looking boy who is cheekily sticking his tongue out at the camera.
Kelly Pearson responded: “I’m shocked? Have you emailed them a strongly-worded complaint?”
Also available from ‘Philips T15’, is a girls’ T-shirt available in blue and pink for the same price. It can be bought for ages two to 12. That is modelled by a smiling girl aged about six.
A baby bib, priced at £8.99, which comes in a ‘natural’ grey colour with white branding, is available in one-size, medium.
All of these products are currently in-stock and are despatched from Estonia with an additional cost of £4.99 for delivery.
Another seller, Cotton Island, offers a £13 children’s T-shirt emblazoned with a similar logo and the text: “Can’t beat the feeling.”
Earlier this year Amazon were slated after it emerged third party sellers were advertising Chinese fancy dress with pictures of white children making “slant-eyed” gestures.
The costumes, described as “Chinese boy fancy dress costume” and priced between £21.86 and £22.02, were being sold with the offensive photograph on Amazon by Atosa and Fyasa.
The retailer quickly withdrew the products following an online backlash.
An Amazon spokesman later revealed that the items had been withdrawn and that the sellers responsible could lose their accounts.
He said: “All Marketplace sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who don’t will be subject to action including potential removal of their account.
“The products in question are no longer available.”
