Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie T-shirts by Misguided slammed as offensive

An online fashion retailer has been accused of "cashing in" on Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's split after selling t-shirts with the slogans Team Brad and Team Angelina.

Missguided, which is popular among teenagers for its low-cost designs, is touting the £12 (NZD$21.18) shirts on its website encouraging fans to "pick a team" - even including a Team Jen version.

But over on Twitter, furious shoppers have accused them of exploiting the couple's 'broken marriage' after Angelina filed for divorce last month.

Twitter user Lexi wrote: "Missguided are selling "team brad" and "team angelina" tops and i think that a bit f***ed up tbh."

Brittany Joy Woods echoed her sentiments, adding: "As if Missguided have made Team Brad/ Angelina/ Jen t shirts.

Whoever buys one is an absolute melt."

One shopper commented: "The fact Missguided are selling Team Brad and Team Angelina tshirts really annoys me."

And joining dozens of social media users, Jo added: "How are Missguided gunna sell "Team Brad! and "Team Angelina" tshirts."

Tilly-Jayne Kidman tweeted: "Are the "team Brad" "team Jen" and "team Angelina" tshirst on Missguided really that necessary?? Blergh"

While Sammy Williams commented that it was a "bit rude cashing in one someone's divorce like that."

"Missguided are seriously running out of ideas for clothes if they're selling team Brad and Angelina tops," wrote Lucy. "Oh, and team Jen?!"

Chiming in on the debate, Jessica Bolingbroke added: "They have 'Team Brad' and 'team Angelina!' t-shirts on Missguided... are they for real that's someone's broken marriage."

Yazmine blasted 'why is that a thing?' while miss chanandler bong commented: 'they don't mess around.'

Brad and Angelina, who have six children together, shocked fans last month with the announcement that they were filing for divorce, with the actress citing irreconcilable differences.

But the Team Brad / Team Jen debate has been raging for more than a decade, after Brad left his wife of four-and-a-half years and embarked on a relationship with Ms Jolie.

This is not the first time Missguided has received criticism for one of its designs; in November 2015 the retailer was dragged into a sexism debate after selling a £12 ($21.18) cropped jumper emblazoned with the word "slut".

The fashion website described the jumper as the "perfect piece for an easy outfit" with a "fierce fluffy pink slogan".

They also advised customers to take inspiration from the film Mean Girls, quoting the line: "In Girl Word, Halloween is the one day a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut and no other girls can say anything else about it!"

As of Wednesday morning the Team Brad, Team Jen and Team Angelina t-shirts were still available on the site.
