Nike Inc. says it will no longer sell its popular “Boston Massacre” T-shirts -- lightheartedly designed for New York Yankees fans -- in wake of the horrific bombing at last week’s Boston Marathon, which left three people dead and hundreds injured.

"We conducted this process as quickly as possible and are confident the product has been removed from distribution," a spokesperson for the Portland,Oregon-based company said in a statement emailed to The Associated Press.

The shirts – which featured blood-splattered lettering as a dig to Boston Red Sox fans -- were mainly sold at its factory store outlets.
