UPDATE — MAY 7, 6:20pm PST: Target responded to BuzzFeed‘s piece about the shirt with this statement: “It is never our intent to offend guests with the products we offer, and we take feedback from guests very seriously. We are in the process of removing the item from our stores and Target.com.”

Kudos, Target.

How many of you saw the Star Wars shirt sold by Target that had the characters in a “Most Likely” yearbook scenario? You know, the one which listed Princess Leia as “Most Likely to be Rescued.” Well, after tons of tweets, it looks like Target has taken the shirt off of its online store. Here was the original tweet about it.

 

A little while ago, I got this tweet from @HasdiBravo, with a link to the shirt’s page, along with a link to the Google cache

The shirt no longer shows up in searches, but here is what the link shows:

I guess tweeting about something makes a difference sometimes. FYI: I’ve been scouring the Target website to find someone to get a statement from, but to no avail.
