URBAN OUTFITTERS CAUSES ONLINE OUTRAGE OVER SHIRT

September 15th, 2014

The clothing items appears to be a reference to the 1970s shooting that left four unarmed college students killed at the Ohio university.

Urban Outfitters has come under fire for selling a red-splattered, blood stained-like “vintage” Kent State sweatshirt.

The clothing item appears to be a reference to the May 4, 1970 shooting (also known as the May 4 massacre) at the Ohio university campus, in which the incident left four college students killed by the Ohio National Guards during a Vietnam War protest. The tragedy later inspired the protest song “Ohio,” by Neil Young, who performed the single with his band Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

According to BuzzFeed, the sweatshirt — described as “Washed soft and perfectly broken in, this vintage Kent State sweatshirt is cut in a loose, slouchy fit. Excellent vintage condition. We only have one, so get it or regret it!” — caused Twitter users to call out Urban Outfitter’s poor taste for selling the piece, with some saying “it is appalling” and others deeming it as “another reason to boycott” the company. The sweatshirt has since been marked as “sold out” from the retailer’s website.

This isn’t the first time Urban Outfitters has faced public backlash for one of its products, selling a “depression” crop top, an “eat less” v-neck tee, and a shirt that was featured in two color combos called “Obama/Black” and “White/Charcoal,” among many other repulsive references.

Teri Hatcher The Actress Is Pretty Awesome……………

September 14th, 2014

Today I had the opportunity to watch Teri Hatcher from the hit TV show ‘Desperate Housewives’ swim 1/2 mile, bike 18 miles, and run 4 miles for charity. It takes a great soul and a strong body to do that for another’s gain. People who do stuff like this make me smile and feel as if there are still people out there who take the time to still care.

Thank you Teri Hatcher for helping make a better life for those who use the “Children’s Hospital Of Los Angeles”.
