A young boy told to bring a China-themed jersey for a class project didn’t like what he found on Amazon,
The boy entered the search term “China flag jersey” when a vulgar item appeared-a f*ck China bumper sticker.
The New York Post did its own search and got the same result.
Amazon described the query findings as a mistake and told the Post it has removed the bumper sticker from similar searches.
“Customer trust is a top priority, and we work to maintain that trust throughout the shopping experience,” Amazon spokesperson Alyssa Bronikowski said. “We continuously monitor our store and act quickly if we find or are alerted about an issue.”
However, AsAmNews found Amazon is still selling the item( See featured image atop this post)

RELATED: Asian Am Democrats to guard against anti-China backlash in Congress
Earlier this week, the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus expressed concern that increasing anti-China rhetoric could lead to more anti-Asian violence and hate crimes.
House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries appointed four members of the Caucus to the Select Committee on Strategic Competition between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party. The members requested the committee assignment to guard against more anti-China rhetoric from other committee members. The four also vowed to protect the U.S. from any threats China poses.
The Amazon controversy comes at a time when the U.S. is actively monitoring a China spy balloon flying over the Midwest. Some in Congress have called for the balloon to be shot down, but there’s concern the debris could fall on a highly populated area-causing both damage and injury.
