    T.J. Maxx has pulled a T-shirt from its shelves after a shopper tweeted an image of the shirt featuring the phrase "Hang Loose" and an illustration of a noose, leading to an uproar on social media.

    Beachwear company Tavik made the shirt, hence the surfing term "Hang Loose," but the inclusion of the noose led posters on social media to draw connections to lynching and suicide.
