The Children’s Place Doesn’t Sell A Shirt With Gamora On It, So One Girl Fixed It

gotg tee before and after

Take a close look at the Guardians of the Galaxy t-shirt pictured above left. Someone important is missing: Gamora. The female assassin is a member of the Guardians team and has a pretty hefty role in the Marvel film, but she’s being left out of merchandise. I noticed her missing in t-shirts, a coffee mug, and even party supplies.

Twitter user Kristen spotted this exclusionary tee at The Children’s Place and decided to write them about it. In the meantime, her daughter fixed the shirt by adding Gamora. She did a fine job. The Children’s Place, however, not so much. This is how they replied to Kristen’s question about the lack of Gamora on the t-shirt:

“We rely on advice from our licensors for our licensed tees. The Guardians of the Galaxy shirt in particular is a boy’s shirt, which is why it does not include the female character Gamora. We try to have a diverse assortment but unfortunately cannot represent each movie and character.”

Not. Impressed.
