The football world was united in disgust. And we can only imagine how the players wearing the thing feel about it.

Whatever calamities West Ham may be experiencing we may be thankful that they are nothing in comparison to Sunderland's away kit.— bob evans (@thebobevans) September 18, 2016

But really we just all want to know: Why, even, was this allowed to happen?
A) Who designed this Sunderland kit and b) why didn't someone stop them?— ODDSbible (@ODDSbible) September 18, 2016
Get in the sea, kit.
And all of you go with it.
