they literally sold a blood-stained-looking sweatshirt with the name of a college that there was a school shooting at
they sold prescription-drug related accessories trying to make it cute
they sold a board game entitled “gettopoly” i should not have to explain why this is bad
they sold a super cissexist card with the T slur on it
they literally sold this shirt
PLEASE STOP SHOPPING AT URBAN OUTFITTERS
What about the racially- and religiously- insensitive stuff they’ve sold? Such as socks and a duvet with Lord Ganesh, an important figure in Hinduism, as the main focus. The Universal Society of Hinduism complained so UO would stop selling them. The Navajo people had to complain to UO when the store sold a line of items labelled ‘Navajo’ which in fact had nothing to do with the tribe. These items consisted of panties and a flask.
Or what about stealing the designs of local artists and book-cover designers and selling the resulting items at sometimes 4x the price the original artists charged- without crediting any of these artists?
Or using a photo of a 15-year-old model with her legs open and her crotch the focus of the photo? She claimed it drew attention for pedophiles and that she never gave her consent to have her picture used. She filed a lawsuit for $28 million.
Not to mention they only have TWO women on their board of directions (one being the founder’s wife), but the actual founder himself, Richard Hayne, is blatantly anti-gay marriage and pro-life, and has been known to use profits he made from UO and Anthropologie to support politicians such as Rick Santorum. Let’s not forget what Santorum said about rape- that it, and the pregnancy that can result, are a ‘gift’ and rape victims should make the ‘best of a bad situation’
UO also pulled a ‘support same-sex marriage’ shirt from their stores almost as soon as they started selling it.
They are literally so shit. I cannot believe anyone still shops there.
