Sales of the flags were skyrocketing at Amazon at the time of the announcement. At the time of publication, a cheapo polyester Confederate battle flag remains the top seller in the site's flag category, knocking the ever-popular Swastika into second place.
The sudden revulsion at the flag follows last week's killing of nine people by white supremacist Dylann Roof, who has been charged with the murders and returned to South Carolina to face trial.
UPDATE: And Etsy too!
"Today, we are removing confederate flag items from our marketplace," the company said. "Etsy's policies prohibit items or listings that promote, support or glorify hatred and these items fall squarely into that category."
