On Tuesday, artist Felix d’Eon‏ accused Target of “stealing” one of his designs and putting it on a t-shirt.

“Is this how you support the queer Latinx community, @Target, by stealing the art of a gay Mexican artist?” d’Eon tweeted.

As of Wednesday morning, Target had pulled the t-shirt from its website — but had not publicly responded or apologized.

Target is under fire after selling — then pulling — a t-shirt that appears to use a piece of art without the creator’s permission.

“Target stole a design of mine and printed it on a tshirt,” artist Felix d’Eon‏ tweeted late on Tuesday. “Is this how you support the queer Latinx community, @Target , by stealing the art of a gay Mexican artist? I’m curious to hear what you have to say!”

On Wednesday, when Business Insider went to view the “Pride Adult Short Sleeve Igualdad T-Shirt” on the retailer’s online store, Target’s website said that the product was “currently unavailable.”
