Sadly, this isn't first time that Zara has made questionable design choices.
There was also this controversial kids' shirt in 2014:
And who can forget the time a woman bought a dress with a RAT LEG sewn into it?

According to a statement from Zara, there is absolutely no link to the Pepe meme.
The skirt was intended as part of a limited collection in collaboration with artist Mario de Santiago.
A spokesperson for the company explained: "Mario explores social interactions through his work and in his own words: 'The idea came from a wall painting I drew with friends some years ago.' There is absolutely no link to the suggested theme."
