T-shirt in online store in Ukraine: "Holy Sheet, are you a Jew?"

Ternopil - The Jewish community in Ukraine is outraged after NU SHO,  an online store located in the city of Ternopol in the western part of the country offered for sale a shirt on which the antisemitic caption was printed: "Holy Sheet. What, are you a Jew?" («Холи шит, ты что жид?»)

Officials in the Jewish community in Ukraine demanded the store, which posted a photo of the shirt on its Instagram account, to immediately stop selling the shirt and issue an apology, otherwise they would appeal to law enforcement authorities for a criminal investigation. Following the demand, the advertising was removed and store managers claimed it was not a product with anti-Semitic characteristics and apologized to anyone who found himself injured.
