Urban Outfitters seems bent on marketing via bad taste.
Not having been content with previous clothing references to Nazi concentration camps and the stigma of depression, it was called out over the weekend for selling a “vintage” Kent State sweatshirt that evoked the 1970 campus shootings.
The description of the apparently blood-spattered shirt included this message: “We only have one, so get it or regret it!”
Many took to Twitter to voice their opinions:
I would love to hear exactly why Urban Outfitters thought that sweatshirt was okay. #sickening
