Wal-Mart has pulled a Black Lives Matter T-shirt from its online offerings amid complaints by police.

Wal-Mart told Fox News Insider that it will no longer sell the shirts with the words "Bulletproof: Black Lives Matter" on its website.

The move came after the Fraternal Order of Police called the shirts offensive and asked the retailer to stop sales.

Wal-Mart responded by providing a statement Tuesday to the Associated Press pledging to cease sales of the shirts.

The statement says the company has a marketplace with millions of items offered by third parties, including Blue Lives Matter, Black Lives Matter" and All Lives Matter merchandise.

It said Wal-Mart removed the Black Lives Matter shirt after hearing concerns from customers.

The shirts were sold by Connecticut-based Old Glory Merchandise. A company representative was not immediately available for comment.
