(EDGE) A U.K.-based company removed a controversial "straight pride" pin from its website and from Amazon after some shoppers took issue with the badge, Newsweek reports.
Amazon users found the "Straight Heterosexual Pride Wavy Gold Plated Flag Pin Badge" on the site, which was being sold by a company called 1000 Flags. The pin would set you back about $8 USD. Both 1000 Flags and Amazon have nixed the flag from their sites.
Newsweek reports some users were properly outraged at the flag, leaving one-star reviews and calling it "terrible" and "anti-LGBT." One user reportedly asked if a purchase of the pin "come[s] with a KKK membership?"
Twitter users were quick to poke fun at the "straight pride" pin, pointing out its dull flag colors.
Apparently, you can now buy a Straight Pride flag pin. It is also the most ho-hum color combo ever, like those pics that makeup companies use of arms showing you different colors of foundation. Not exactly a ringing endorsement. pic.twitter.com/ywpbY1arzr— Megan Pillow Davis (@megpillow) April 12, 2018
So apparently this is a Straight Pride Flag... I know.. Boring to match your real life because NO ONE DISCRIMINATES AGAINST YOU pic.twitter.com/t85u1dycp7— Roly (@RolyUnGashaa) April 12, 2018
Wait. People are selling this thing as a straight pride flag?— itsonlyzach (@itsonlyzach) April 12, 2018
A straight pride flag should be completely white like a flag of surrender because if you're wearing one, you've given up on sense. pic.twitter.com/8h6K97WFXW
The point of “straight pride” is really to make fun of queer people.— Lana Del Gay 🏳️🌈👻✨ (@McClellandShane) April 12, 2018
Fortunately, this thing is as hideous and bland as the folks who would buy it. https://t.co/NOpovDe04t
The only way I'd buy this Straight Pride flag is if it was an eyeshadow palette. pic.twitter.com/F6j5HDeAFK— Helen (@Iettertodaddy) April 12, 2018
The “straight pride” flag is so hilariously beige I’d say it’s a meta commentary on the unoriginal staidness of heterosexuality, if I believed any straight person could understand that 🤷🏻♂️— Patrick Swayne (@pswayne7) April 12, 2018
