American clothing retailer Urban Outfitters is catching flak on the internet after selling an odd choice of clothing. A top that covers, well, nothing.

Urban Outfitters tried to sell a top to women on its website called the ‘Extreme Crop Tank Top Shrug’ - and it may well be the most bizarre trend we’ve ever seen. The ‘extreme’ title is absolutely right because it is a little more than a small piece of cloth with a description that reads, “The ultra-sexy way to layer with this teeny cropped tank top by Out From Under. Cropped above chest for the coolest layered look featuring a crop neck and thin shoulder straps.”

Naturally, the internet had thoughts and Urban Outfitters has since removed the ‘top’ from their site.

The minuscule £13 garment has come under fire by shoppers who joke it looks more like a “necklace” than a top. @Elliebrickland wrote on Twitter, “Crop top???? Urban outfitters this is a necklace babes.”

This isn’t the first time the company has caught some backlash for its products. Recently, when Urban Outfitters attempted to sell a simulated blood-stained sweatshirt, it that didn’t go over well with shoppers.

The brand was forced to apologise for designing a Kent State sweatshirt splattered with fake blood in what appeared to be a reference to the 1970 massacre, where four students were killed and nine severely wounded in a shooting, after the Ohio National Guard opened fire at a protest against US President Nixon’s Cambodian Campaign.

Here’s how Urban Outfitters was trolled online for selling the ridiculous women’s ‘top’:
