just in case the numerous accounts of theft and plagiarism wasn’t enough to make you stop shopping at Urban Outfitters, recently they started selling a “vintage Kent State sweatshirt” covered in bullet holes and blood stains in reference to the Kent State Shootings in 1970. They’ve removed the item altogether from their website and gave a half assed “im sorry YOU got offended” apology
please for the love of god stop shopping at urban outfitters
Come on, guys…
This is a publicity stunt, plain and simple.
UO put this out to trying to make themselves seem “edgy” and “counterculture”, but OBVIOUSLY that backfired and blew up in their goddamn faces…
…but it got people talking about Urban Outfitters, and that’s why it was put out in the first place.
And seriously, you guys honestly think they’d be selling A FUCKING SWEATSHIRT for $129? Use your brains, Tumblr babies…
I’m a student at Kent State, and when I first saw this, I thought it was stupid and offensive. But really, it’s nothing to shit your pants about…calm the fuck down.
