'Racist' noose shirt pulled from shelves

Tavik, a surfing clothing company, issued an apology Monday after one of its T-shirt designs depicting a noose and the words "hang loose" created a backlash online.

The company removed the shirt from shelves after people on Twitter called the shirt both racist and insensitive to people affected by suicide.

"We sincerely apologize for any offense caused by this T-shirt. This item was released without going through proper protocols and is not related to anything other than surfing. We are pulling this item from retailers immediately," Tavik said in a written statement to USA TODAY Network.
