    Grabbed off the body of Jeffrey Miller and kept in storage all these years just to be let out in time for your Christmas shopping!
    People are way too uptight.

    If you want the real deal there's gotta be tons of FUBU shirts out there with bullet holes and blood on them.

    Although a little fucked up, it's funny watching all of the fake outrage over this. I salute you urban outfitters for not giving a fuck.

    “Urban Outfitters sincerely apologizes for any offense our Vintage Kent State Sweatshirt may have caused. It was never our intention to allude to the tragic events that took place at Kent State in 1970 and we are extremely saddened that this item was perceived as such. The one-of-a-kind item was purchased as part of our sun-faded vintage collection. There is no blood on this shirt nor has this item been altered in any way. The red stains are discoloration from the original shade of the shirt and the holes are from natural wear and fray. Again, we deeply regret that this item was perceived negatively and we have removed it immediately from our website to avoid further upset.”

    I think it's hilarious, I'd prob see how it's received on Halloween then based on that slowly move it into Friday attire

    How to Maximize Your Ad Budget

    Every year companies spend millions trying to get noticed with lame Super Bowl ads.

    When will they learn that all they have to do is cross the fine line between edgy and bad taste and the media will give you free publicity proportional to the misplaced moral outrage.

    Here are a list of things companies should consider investing their ad money in: murder, rape, full frontal nudity, gay shit, racial stereotypes, Nazism, sexualizing minors, Jackass style stunts, atheism or any anti-Christian sentiment, etc.

    By dabbling in these from time-to-time, companies can appear to be edgy to the youth by appalling the moral majority, while still raking in cold, hard profit - which is really all stockholders concern themselves with anyway.​

    So...they put that out, then apologize....like they couldn't see any issue...at all... My (and I'm sure many others) theory continues to prove itself out daily....people/companies now use this stunt as a means to publicity. I know it's obvious, but I think it must be in the 101 handbook now.
