T-shirt offensively references immigrants

(WFLX) - A t-shirt, being sold at several South Florida malls, is coming under fire. Many find its message about illegal immigrants offensive.

The shirt reads:

"Illegal immigrants are like sperm. Millions come in but only one little bastard actually works."

Some people even want them pulled from the shelves. "I think it's insulting to all the immigrants. There's every type of immigrant in this country," said one person.

"I think it's very hateful and a very bad thing to say about a certain ethnic group," another added.

Some people say the t-shirt should continue being sold saying it's free speech.

The shirts were also sold in California and Maine.
