Problem Solved is a controversial slogan on a t-shirt designed by Route 66 Attitude, a clothing line sold by major U.S. department store Kmart. The shirt depicts a male stick figure and a female stick figure arguing in the first frame (captioned "Problem"), and in the second frame, the male pushes the female out of a window (captioned "Solved.")[1]

Due to its encouragement of violence against women, the t-shirt generated protests and petitions for its removal from Kmart stores across the United States in late 2006 and early 2007, including in Augusta, Maine, Oakland, California, Portland, Oregon,[2] and Toledo, Ohio.[3] While a spokesperson for Kmart's parent company Sears Holdings Corporation said that the shirt was intended to be "light hearted", Meijer reported that they had pulled the shirts immediately after a protest.[4]
