    A sweatshirt being sold by Urban Outfitters featuring fake blood stains and tattered edges with the logo of Kent State University, where four students were killed in a 1970 incident that shocked America, is “beyond poor taste and trivializes a loss of life,” university officials said Monday.

    The $129 vintage Kent State University sweatshirt is “washed soft and perfectly broken in,” the clothier’s website boasts, offering a loose, “slouchy” fit for those seeking gruesome reminders to the campus killings that rocked the nation, leaving nine others wounded.

    Don't Universities own their logos? I would have thought they would have to have a licensing deal to use it, but I guess not

    $129 for a sweatshirt? They should be shot!




    Yes, I think it's bad form.

    Is being politically incorrect and/or a complete douchebag illegal?

    I don't think so. Neither is calling someone an asshole that sells shit in bad taste.

    People aren't happy unless they're offended.

    Correction: people aren't happy unless they're offended and they can let you know they're offended.

    I don't even know what they sell there, but from the sound of the name I assume they won't even let you in the store if you're not a complete douchebag. :dontknow:
