Christmas Tree Shops has pulled “offensive” shark-related items from all of its stores on Cape Cod following a number of complaints.
In recent days, some residents have expressed outrage over items mocking shark attacks on beachgoers, CapeCod.com first reported.
One item that sparked dissatisfaction among shoppers was a “Shark Week” kitchen towel that said, “Nice to Eat You” on the bottom. There was another item that reportedly said, “Send More Tourists, The Last Ones Were Delicious!” A red T-shirt also had a message scrawled across the front that read, “Come to the Shark Side.”
“It’s a pretty touchy subject around here,” one resident told the news outlet. “I think if one more person gets killed I think this place [Cape Cod] is done.”
