It’s not fake news: Topshop is actually selling jeans that have the words “fake news” written on each side. The British fashion retailer’s MOTO ‘Fake News’ Slogan Straight Leg Jeans, which are currently sold out, are causing a stir on the internet and people can’t decide if they like the Donald Trump-inspired fashion statement.

“Make a statement with our MOTO mid rise, straight leg jeans in mid blue low stretch denim with ‘fake news’ slogan side stripe,” the product description reads. The bright red-striped jeans, which were listed as a “trending product,” cost $90—and attracted plenty of attention on social media.


Some Twitter users liked the bold “fake news” jeans. “I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want these,” one user wrote on Twitter. “I high key actually would wear these just for the satire,” another tweeted. Other users weren’t so convinced. “When the Leader’s slogans become normalized to point of commodification,” shared one person, while another user wrote, “Because the disintegration of truth, science, and journalism is so fashionable. Give me a break @Topshop.” Others stayed neutral and simply pointed out that the jeans would make for a great outfit choice at Trump’s Dishonest & Corrupt Media Awards, which the president announced is taking place Jan. 17.

Topshop’s “fake news” jeans are not the first bizarre piece of clothing to go viral on social media. Last year, their clear plastic jeans and clear knee mom jeans puzzled the internet, while Nordstrom’s fake mud-covered jeans were met with much confusion. Of course, there has also been plenty of politically-charged fashion statements—from empowering slogans written on t-shirts to pink “pussy hats” that were popular during last year’s Women’s March.
