When the storm surge is rising and you're listening to the sound of distant sirens, do you think to yourself, "Hey, I really need a pair of ribbed leggings right now?"

Critics say that not only is the always-controversial company trying to turn a profit from tragedy, but also that they're trivializing the destruction left behind in the hurricane-swept states "eligible" for their stupid discount. Many people took to Twitter to slam them for their awful idea, with several threatening to boycott the stores even after the weather improves. "The lowest of the low," one user wrote. [Source]
