A Florida clothing company has sparked outrage from social media users for “glorifying” North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un by promoting a men’s romper with the dictator’s face on it.
The retailer, “Get on Fleek,” lists the outfit featuring a close-up of Kim Jong-un’s face for sale on its website for the “reduced” price of $79.
The retailer also sells a hoodie, jersey, crewneck T-shirt, and tank top featuring his face.
Ever since advertisements for the romper started showing up in online ads, social media users started calling out the company for “glorifying” a dictator:

“How can I express my love of foreign totalitarianism but also of capitalism,” The Wrap’s Carli Velocci wrote.
The company is facing a lot of heat on social media, especially after North Korea made headlines for its brutal treatment of American student Otto Warmbier, who died Monday after returning to the United States a week ago in a coma with severe brain injuries.
