We can’t imagine what we’d do if online shopping didn’t exist since it’s so convenient, and we can buy items from almost anywhere in the world. However, sometimes the product that arrives may not be exactly what you ordered, as this young mother recently discovered to hilarious effect.
According to Shanghaiist, the mother, identified as Kelsey Dawn Williamson from Illnois, had ordered a supposedly cute “Frog and Toad” T-shirt from AliExpress for her three-year-old daughter, Salem. She was surprised and rather amused to find that the item she received had a little something extra added.
In a post on Facebook, she said that she wanted the classic image of children’s book characters Frog and Toad riding a bicycle together on a T-shirt for Salem and had ordered the t-shirt from a Chinese seller. The shirt arrived with the image she wanted, but there was an additional phrase at the bottom of the shirt that she had not expected to see, saying, “F*CK THE POLICE.”
Williamson was both shocked and amused at the shirt as that phrase was not seen on the original product photo on AliExpress. She was so tickled that she dressed her daughter in the shirt for a picture and said, “I love China.” After Williamson’s post went viral, she also received criticism about her daughter’s weight among other things. Chill lah peeps and just laugh at the funny mistake!
Inkstone reached out to the seller, and Huang Sen, the co-owner said, “It’s a photo processing blunder. My employees didn’t understand that line and failed to take it out. Is what it says radical, negative or anti-government?”
However, he did not clarify how the phrase had appeared on the T-shirt in the first place.
He said that after Williamson posted the photo, the orders for the shirts had skyrocketed, with more than 100 pieces being ordered.
