Higher-ups at Walmart(WMT) - Get Report might want to have a talk with their apparel buyers. 

During a recent trip to a Walmart store in Islandia, New York, TheStreet came across a blue and white tank top displaying cups and a ping pong ball that was hanging in the kid's apparel department. Donning the tagline "ball so hard," the shirt suggests the underage youth of America partake in an epic game of beer pong.  

The popular drinking game of college kids is played by setting up often red, plastic cups filled with beer and trying to toss a ping pong ball into the cup. The first team to clear the table of all the beer laden cups wins.


Walmart wants your college to win at beer pong.

A Walmart spokesman didn't respond to a request for comment on whether the company has received complaints about the shirt. 

The somewhat controversial new shirt at Walmart follows a flat out apparel miscue that was brought to light during the recent NCAA basketball tournament.

Walmart pulled a Russell Athletic T-shirt that featured the logo of the Maryland Terrapins, the University of Maryland's team that's commonly called the "Terps," that it had been selling since last summer. The Maryland logo was placed on top of an outline of the state of Massachusetts, which only recently caused an uproar on Twitter.

Apparel is big business for Walmart, so it may want to get its act together if it doesn't want to lose customers turned off by its design mistakes. Sales of apparel represented about 8% of Walmart's U.S. sales in 2015, or $23.8 billion.
