Images of a t-shirt mocking the Afghan boys who died after falling from a US Air Force jet while attempting to flee Afghanistan have gone viral on social media.
The insensitive printed tees feature a photo of a US military plane and two people falling from it, with the caption, ‘Kabul Skydiving Club Est. 2021.’ The images have since gone viral on the internet, with netizens criticising the club for the ‘disgusting’ print.
As Afghans are fleeing and clinging to planes out of desperation, someone decided to capitalize on their pain and misery with this repulsive t-shirt.
It’s being sold on at least half a dozen t-shirt printing websites right now. Humans can be so cruel. pic.twitter.com/du5cCbD2QA

“Some human beings truly are sick, and should be openly regarded and declared as such,” one user wrote.
“Why do I bet we won’t be surprised by the people hawking this crap?” another user wrote reacting to the photo.
If I encounter anyone wearing a shirt like this, they're going to have a bad day. https://t.co/K7epAhqw1j
