This is the Extreme Crop Tank Top Shrug, from Urban Outfitter's line of loungewear and lingerie called Out From Under. It's a real thing.

I wish I was kidding.

Racked senior editor Alanna Okun exposed this $16... top? To the world, and no one understands what is even is.

It's too short to qualify as a tank top, it's not underwear, and it certainly isn't a shrug. What even, Urban Outfitters?

Needless to say, the internet went OFF.

Many people just left it at a simply stated "HELL NO."

Others went for catchy new nicknames.

A few exhausted themselves trying to come up with a use for it.

But most were just confused at a level they'd never experienced.

The rage over this mystery top spread so widely and quickly that Urban Outfitters removed it from its website.

Good work, internet.

This outrage-and-removal process is far from new to Urban Outfitters.

The brand has attempted to sell several extremely offensive items, including but not limited to the following: A Kent State sweater that appeared to be blood spattered (above), a "drunk Jesus" t-shirt, and numerous shirts glorifying mental illness and eating disorders. All of the items were pulled from UO after widespread outrage.

Many people believe Urban Outfitters and similar brands sell controversial stuff on purpose to attract young audiences.

Because controversy gets shared more than anything on social media, and you know what they say: all publicity is good publicity.

So no one's really sure what the real deal is with this overpriced barbecue bib.

But at least this time we could get some entertainment out of roasting it.

Do better, Urban Outfitters.
