Urban Outfitters wants to teach the world how to dress in bad taste, and they stuck to that idea while selling a Kent State sweater which was spattered in fake blood.
In May 1970 the Ohio National Guard shot and killed 4 students who were protesting against President Nixon’s military occupation of Cambodia on the university’s campus. According to DAZED, “the sweatshirt was retailing at $129 and has now either sold out or been yanked from stores. It’s now turned up on eBay with a “Buy It Now” price of $2,500.”
This is what happens when you let your unpaid interns come up with ideas for merchandise!
