More than 500,000 people have signed a petition urging Macy's to cut its ties with real estate mogul and TV star Donald Trump.
The petition, posted on the website Signon.org, was created by 30-year-old lawyer Angelo Carusone and accuses Trump of unpleasant, nasty and despicable behavior. The petition also claims that Trump's attitude towards women is sexist.
Carusone started a similar effort called "Stop Beck" in 2009, which focused on controversial figure Glenn Beck, ABC News reports.
During this year's presidential election, Trump offered Obama $5 million for charity to release his college and passport records. The stunt was highly criticized and mocked in the media and on the web.
The 'Dump Trump' petition states:
The department store currently has a deal with Trump to sell his branded goods. He is also featured several ads. According to ABC News, Macy's released a statement Tuesday that distanced the company from Trump's comments.
""Many of the individuals associated with products sold at Macy's -- or at any retailer, for that matter -- express personal opinions that are not related to the merchandise we sell or to the philosophies of our company."
Trump has not commented on the petition.
