MIAMI-DADE, FL (CNN) - An anti-immigrant T-shirt being sold in South Florida stores has many people upset.

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

The shirts were sold at Spencer's in Southland Mall. While some were shocked by the slogan, others say it's freedom of speech.

"To say that millions are going to come here and only one - I won't say the word - only one comes to work, it's very hateful," said Fernando Rangel, who was offended by the shirt.

"We have freedom of speech, absolutely," said Terry Marquetti, who also said she was offended by the shirt. "I mean, whoever wants to purchase the shirt, that's up to them. We have freedom of speech. That's what America's all about."

The shirt was also sold in stores in California and Maine. Spencer's reportedly said they meant the shirt to be funny and topical, but because so many found it offensive, they've pulled it from the shelves.

They should sell tons of them.

I totaly agree with him, We have been brainwashed over the past 30 plus years! Not to hurt feelings, cause its wrong, I sound like Neil Boortz. Listen to him and LEARN!!
