I’m disappointed. Haven’t we gotten over this shit by now? Check THIS T-shirt out.
The company withdrew the t-shirts after receiving complaints, saying:
“We have received some negative feedback regarding two of our printed T-shirts.
‘Whilst we would like to stress that these T-shirts were meant to be light hearted and carried no serious meaning we have made the decision to remove these from store and on-line as soon as possible.
‘We would like to apologise to those who may have been offended by these designs.’
So you are basically saying no one, NO ONE in your design team, in your office, in your executive blue carpet area said “hang on. That t-shirt (made for men, by Top Man), doesn’t it kind of try to make violence against women funny? Should we do this?”
You idiotic bunch of tools. Goes double for the internet trolls who can’t see any harm in it. Top Shop is a multi-million dollar company, selling overpriced, cheaply made shite. When I was a young’un, they were just cheap and I bought their sweat-shop g-strings and clunky jewellery. I’ve made the occasional purchase over the years, but I won’t ever again. And neither should you.
Pleading total ignorance (if true, and probably not) is only second to selling t-shirts that make smashing your partner in the face hilarious. Top Shop: Dead to me. And if I ever see a man wearing this, I’ll smash him against the kitchen cabinets.
