Aldi Australia has announced it will remove its controversial “Australia EST. 1788″ T-Shirt from sale following social media pressure and claims that the slogan was “racist”.
An Aldi Australia spokesperson said the decision was made “following comments by a limited number of concerned customers”.
The T-shirts and singlets were scheduled to go on sale this Saturday, 11 January. Others in the $5 range will still be sold.
The move follows earlier media reports about growing protests on Twitter.
How ironic that on the ALDI's Twitter page they feature two people with their mouths blocked. Looks like banning the freedom of expression - "Australia est 1788" on a t-shirt is something that goes along with ALDI's ethos.
