Disturbing Madeleine McCann merchandise sold online as “Perfect Gift” for Mother’s Day

As the world marks the 14th anniversary of Madeleine McCann‘s disappearance, stomach-churning merchandise has been put on sale online as part of a Mother’s Day promotion.

The items, described as the “perfect gift,” include children’s clothing, mugs, T-shirts, jumpers, and even maternity outfits, with the slogan ‘My name is Madeleine and I live with my parents’ printed on them.

The merchandise is being sold on CafePress, a website that offers custom-designed products. Among the items for sale is a kid-sized footie shirt named after Gerry and Kate McCann, with the words “Responsible parents don’t leave children alone while they go out for dinner!” printed on it.

The shirt has a regular price of $29.18, but the website boasts that it can be purchased for $18.60 thanks to the Mother’s Day sale.

One description of a Madeleine cup reads, “Our unique ceramic mugs will soon be your new favorite way to consume hot or cold beverages.” The mug with the same slogan printed on it as other items on the site is priced at $18.60, but a Mother’s Day sale means it can be bought for $13.95.

The items have sparked outrage, with many people expressing their disgust on social media. Some have called for the website to remove the items from sale immediately, while others have urged shoppers not to purchase them.

Madeleine McCann disappeared from her family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal, on May 3, 2007. She was three years old at the time. Her disappearance remains unsolved, and her parents continue to appeal for information about what happened to their daughter.

The story behind the girl claiming to be Madeleine McCann

In her posts, she claims to have a freckle on her leg and a speck in her eye in the same places as Madeleine, and to bear a resemblance to Madeleine’s parents.

Julia has also stated that she has been in contact with Madeleine’s family and hopes to take a DNA test to prove her claims. However, the Portuguese authorities have stated that they have no evidence to suggest that Madeleine is still alive.

The case of Madeleine McCann’s disappearance has remained a mystery for over a decade, with multiple theories and leads being explored over the years. In 2011, it was announced that the investigation into Madeleine’s disappearance was being closed, but in 2013, it was reopened with new leads being pursued. Despite extensive investigations and appeals, the whereabouts of Madeleine McCann remain unknown.
