Presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke has launched 'this is f***** up' T-shirts in the wake of Saturday's mass shooting that occurred in West Texas.

O'Rourke launched the t-shirts during a campaign event in Virginia on Saturday after he learned of the horrific attack in his home state. During the attack, seven people were killed and 25 more were wounded.

Speaking to MSNBC's Joy Reid on Sunday, he said:

What is profane is 40,000 gun violence deaths in this country [per year].

So let's speak clearly and bluntly, and take decisive action.

He also advocated universal background checks, red flag laws, and mandatory buybacks for assault weapons, reports Mashable.

Team Beto launched the shirts on their official Twitter account, writing:

New in store... 

100% of the proceeds will benefit @MomsDemand and @March4OurLives 

This is f***** up. We can change it

Some social media users loved the t-shirt and showed support for the campaign.

While others were less convinced.

According to the Beto O'Rourke campaign page, 100 per cent of the proceeds from sales of the t-shirt will go towards gun violence prevention groups Moms Demand and March For Our Lives.
