The T-shirt’s description reportedly says that it's “suitable to wear” for people “who are into parachuting, skydiving, those who love jumping from the airplane to experience the highest mood.”
The deaths of Afghan citizens who fell to their deaths after clinging onto a US aircraft taking off from Kabul Airport amid the Taliban's* takeover has apparently served as inspiration for a T-shirt maker who, for some reason, decided to "commemorate" the event.
The T-shirt in question is emblazoned with two people falling as a transport jet soars away, and is emblazoned with "Kabul Skydiving Club Est. 2021."
According to the New York Post, the t-shirt has recently emerged on "several off-brand online clothing stores."
"Featuring the scene of the plane flying in the sky and suddenly, there are two people falling from it, the Kabul Skydiving Club Shirt is officially becoming a phenomenon and goes viral on the Internet after that!” the merchandise’s description said. "For those who are into Parachuting, skydiving, those who love jumping from the airplane to experience the highest mood, this shirt is totally suitable to wear!"
A number of social media users have criticised the design.
*The Taliban is a terrorist organisation banned in Russia and many other countries.
