Topman has removed a t-shirt from its stores and website after its design caused a Hillsborough backlash.
The red shirt had the word "Karma" down one sleeve and a large "96" on the back, along with a rose and the phrase "what goes around comes back around" underneath.
Ninety six Liverpool fans died in the Hillsborough disaster in 1989.
Topman said the design was inspired by a Bob Marley track but when the £20 shirt went on sale online it came to the attention of Liverpool fans, who expressed their disgust on Twitter.
A spokeswoman for the retailer said:
Topman apologises unreservedly for any offence caused by this t-shirt.
"The design was inspired by a Bob Marley track with the number referring to the year of re-release. The garment has been removed from sale online and in stores."
Earlier, one Liverpool fan said on Twitter:
So it's a #BobMarley song and it's managed to get through god knows how many people before it's printed. "Just shows you how few people know about the biggest sporting disaster and cover up this country's ever seen"
Nick Murphy, @nickmurftweets, tweeted:
Please @Topman - take this off the shelf. A genuine mistake I'm sure but this is insulting and upsetting. #JFT96"

Goverment documents relating to events at the so-called Battle of Orgreave are due to be released next year among other records relating to the 1984 miners' strike, it has emerged.
The government's rejected calls, supported by the Hillsborough families, for an independent inquiry into the Battle of Orgreave during the miners' strike.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd told the Home Affairs Select Committee the documents would be among 30 files planned to be released to the National Archives.
There were violent clashes in the summer of 1984 between miners and officers from South Yorkshire Police - the same force which was criticised for its role at the Hillsborough disaster five years later.
