NEW YORK (AP) — Target says it had no intention of offending anyone by selling a women’s shirt with the word “Trophy” written on the front of it.

Some people on social media say the shirt demeans women and are collecting signatures to stop the sale of the shirt.

But Target said Wednesday that the shirt is part of a collection of engagement and wedding shirts that also includes shirts with sayings such as “Team Bride,” ”Mrs.” and “Bride.”

The Minneapolis company said in a written statement that it was never its intention to offend anyone and said that it has received an “overwhelmingly positive” response from customers about the shirts.

The black shirt, with the word “Trophy” in white letters across the front, comes in various sizes and is sold at Target stores and on its website.

A petition has been started on Change.org to try to get the retailer to stop selling the shirt. So far the petition has more than 11,000 signatures, with a goal of 15,000.

Shares of Target added 36 cents to $82.64 in midday trading Wednesday.
