Hurricane Harvey beach shorts? Seriously.

Talk about tacky and tasteless. A third-party seller was offering Hurricane Harvey beach shorts on Amazon.com.

The shorts feature a radar image of Harvey with cities, including Houston and Corpus Christi – two of the hardest-hit areas.

Considering Harvey killed dozens of people, left tens of thousands homeless and cost more than $200 billion, the shorts aren’t going over very well with Amazon customers.

“If I see anyone wearing these in Texas I am pantsing them for sure,” wrote Brendan.

“When you lose your whole life, all you want is some shorts to remind you of it all,” wr ote Jay.

But a few of our Facebook commenters defended them. 

The $16.99 shorts are made in China. The company also offers a Hurricane Matthew version. That 2016 Category 5 storm left hundreds dead and caused more than $15 billion in damage.

We contacted Amazon for a comment and they said they would investigate. We checked Friday night and the page had been taken down.
