Golf equipment manufacturer Airasia has suspended online sales of products with the word “Trump” on them.
The company’s vice president of corporate communications, Julie A. Tullo, said in a statement Tuesday that the company’s sales of Trump golf equipment, including balls, helmets, and bags, are being suspended because of “disturbing” rhetoric that is currently being expressed by people affiliated with Donald Trump and his administration.
She said that Airasia had taken steps to remove the words from its online store in recent weeks.
Tills is an Airasia employee and did not respond to a request for comment.
The news of Airasia’s suspension comes just days after Airasia announced it would no longer offer its Trump-branded golf bags and ball products.
The announcement prompted a backlash from online retailers and golfers, including the Open Championship, which was founded in 2016 by former Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller.
Miller told Golf Digest magazine in April that Trump’s use of the word in campaign rhetoric was an example of his racism and xenophobia.
Miller added that Trump and Airasia were “the same guy.”
In April, Airasia began a campaign of online ads that included a message that said “Donald Trump is the KKK’s new master.”
Tills did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment Tuesday.
The Trump administration has been working to curb hate speech online and to prevent hate groups from operating in the U.S. TILLS’ SELF-ADMITTED MISINFORMATION The company, which operates four golf courses in Arizona and six other golf facilities in Arizona, has been in business since 2014.
In its statement, Tills said it was suspending the sale of its products because it is “aware of the growing controversy surrounding Mr. Trump’s comments.”
The company also said it is conducting a review of its policies and procedures.
“We do not condone the use of derogatory language toward individuals based on their race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, national origin, or age, and we will take all necessary actions to ensure that we are able to continue to offer our customers our products, services, and brands,” Tills wrote.
“However, as we have stated previously, our focus is on offering our customers the best product possible and not on any political agenda or rhetoric.”
The Trump White House has been criticized for promoting Trump-affiliated groups and companies through its website.
The White House does not disclose the names of its donors.
The president of the United States does not donate to presidential campaigns.
Tillos’ statement was released ahead of a scheduled White House press conference scheduled for 6 p.m.
Tillingos’ products include balls, hats, and golf clubs, and the company says its products are sold in stores and online.
Tiles is the name of a popular online store that sells Tills golf apparel.
The online store was founded by Tills’ former employer, Golf Digest.
The golfer said in an interview with The Associated Press that the products sold on the site were “100 percent real.”
Tiles said it would suspend sales until the company can make sure its employees are safe.
“It’s just sad that somebody could be so insensitive and hate-filled,” Tiles told AP.
Tines said the golf business is “a great community” and that Airia has been supportive of his company.
He said that he and Airia employees were “very vocal” in their support for the company, and that they were proud of their company’s position on social media.
Airasia is one of several Trump-linked companies that have been suspended in recent days.
Last month, Trump said in his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention that “many of the bad ones” in the media are “lying” about him.
Trump also has criticized former Vice President Joe Biden for criticizing his business acumen, and his daughter Ivanka has been a vocal critic of her father.
