Such an uproar over a T-shirt I haven’t seen since the donning of the “I Heart Chick-fil-A” at a Pennsylvania schools LGBT event.
This time it’s not individuals who ended up in hot water, but a retail clothier, PacSun. By now you may have heard that the clothing retailer removed a shirt from the racks and shelves portraying an image of an upside down American flag.
CNS News reported that “The $24 T-shirt, sold online and in selected stores, was part of rapper A$AP Rocky’s clothing line, and allegedly was meant to symbolize a nation in distress.
Well, the T-shirt sparked a twitter “Hashtag” campaign in which one of the participants was actor James woods. He tweeted: “Please, every follower of mine, please #Boycott PacSun. Disgusting trashing of American flag on Memorial Day.”
A supporter of the campaign posted on Facebook that “I understand freedom of speech but this shirt, displayed prominently at the entrance of your store, for Memorial Day weekend is more distasteful and disrespectful than anything I thought I’d see. I will not be shopping at PacSun again.”
