‘Daddy’s Little Slut’ kid’s shirt pulled from Amazon amid backlash

Daddy’s little what now?

Amazon has pulled an offensive shirt emblazoned with “Daddy’s Little Slut,” thanks to some good old-fashioned Twitter shaming — but allowed its third party seller to continue hawking other off-color items.

The original $18 shirt sold by OnlyBabyCare started going viral Friday morning, as images of the shocking slogan circulated Twitter. It’s been available on Amazon since June, with a description claiming it was “suitable” for “playing outside, birthday party, baby shower, baptism,” among other family friendly activities.

“Humanity was a mistake, Example #3,415,621,” @JoanneMason11 wrote.

“If I ever saw a child wearing this T-shirt, I’d call the police,” @PhoenixRisingSt wrote.

“I’m actually on the phone with Amazon. The CSR doesn’t even seem shocked,” @JewelResists wrote.

And while the shirt was taken down eight hours later, the seller continued to offer a confusing array of children’s clothing, including a tee that read “Boats and Hoes” and a hat with the words “Black Guns Matter,” with an automatic rifle across the top.

An Amazon spokesperson told The Post that “All sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who do not will be subject to action including potential removal of their account. The product in question is no longer available.”

But the spokesperson declined to comment on the other products sold by OnlyBabyCare that are still available.

Twitter do-gooders clearly still have a lot of work on their hands when it comes to policing offensive clothing. Recently, the online retailer Zazzle was called out for selling a shirt with the words “At least I’m not Jewish” printed on a plain black tee. Walmart was also pushed to remove a shirt from their website which read “Rope. Tree. Journalist. SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED.” It still made its way into the wild, though. A United Airlines passenger was recently spotted wearing it, prompting another passenger to raise the issue with the airline.

And elsewhere on the internet, “Daddy’s Little Slut” merch is still widely available. Etsy, for example, sells both a crop top with the slogan, as well as a black thong with the phrase printed on it.

A tweeter’s work is never truly done.
