Oops! Sears Pulls Swastika Rings

Item: Sears Pulls Swastika Rings from their marketplace website.

Oopsie! Are Swastikas still offensive? Sheesh, can’t you people get OVER it already?

To be fair, these rings showed up in the “Sears Marketplace”, which I believe is not officially Sears. Consumerist also reports that the rings were “briefly” on Amazon.com as well.

The item’s description, according to the Consumerist article, is quite something:

“This gothic jewelry item in particular features a Swastika ring that’s made of .925 Thai silver,” the item description read. “Not for Neo Nazi or any Nazi implication. These jewelry items are going to make you look beautiful at your next dinner date.”

So if, as the song says, you don’t know you’re beautiful…

perhaps one of these rings can help? I doubt it.
