[UPDATED] Things We Saw Today: Target “Most Likely to Screw Up Star Wars Merch”

#WeWantLeia, but not like this!

[UPDATED 5/8/15 1:22pm] – Target PR rep, Evan Miller, reached out to us with the following statement about the above Star Wars shirt!

It is never our intent to offend guests with the products we offer, and we take feedback from guests very seriously. We are in the process of removing the item from our stores and Target.com. I would appreciate if you’re able to update your piece with this statement so your readers know how seriously we take this situation.

TMS reader, Kirsten McKnight tipped us off to this really disappointing men’s Star Wars shirt from Target featuring Leia as “Most Likely to Be Rescued.” Really? Not “Most Likely to Rule?” or “Most Likely to Be a Senator?” or “Most Likely to Rebel?” Get it together, Target!
