A T-shirt reading, "I Wish Hillary Had Married OJ," is sparking controversy after a photo of a man wearing it went viral.

Thousands have liked the photo, which was posted to the We Love Pinterest Facebook page on Oct. 18.

People gave their opinions on its message about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and former NFL star OJ Simpson, who was tried for murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, in 1994.

Many found it amusing and said they want to purchase the T-shirt, with online retailer Tee Chip stating the shirt is one of its best-selling items.

"I'll take a dozen of those shirts!!" wrote one Facebook user. "Where do I order? Lol. Trump!"

Others were outraged by the violent message.

"So you are wishing that she was a victim of repeated domestic violence that eventually would lead to her death through near decapitation?" one man said. "Classy!"

Some responded by defending the T-shirt.

"It just reminds me how many lives have been ruined and lost because of this corrupt, criminal!" one woman said in response to the man's comment. "She should be in prison, yet somehow she's allowed to run for president! Disgraceful! Love the shirt!"

Another person showed approval by adding a photo of a Clinton pointing a gun at her head, along with the words, "The American Dream!"

Some who do not support Clinton agreed the T-shirt was inappropriate.

"Wow!,I'm not a Hillary supporter, but wishing her dead is kinda extreme don't cha think?" another man said.

The shirt comes after many accused Trump of encouraging gun rights advocates to shoot Clinton, the New York Daily News reports.

“Hillary wants to essentially abolish the Second Amendment," Trump said in August. "By the way, and if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks.”

He added, “Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”

Trump's campaign later said he simply meant gun rights advocates should unite together against Clinton.

Some called Trump's comments dangerously irresponsible.

“We must draw a bright red line between political speech and suggestions of violence,” former Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the head in 2011, said. “Responsible, stable individuals won’t take Trump’s rhetoric to its literal end, but his words may provide a magnet for those seeking infamy.”
