Jewish group outraged by Urban Outfitters' Nazi star tee4/21/2012
Urban Outfitters, will you never learn? First the Navajo panties, then the transphobic nursery rhyme card. Now the clothing company is under fire for a patch on certain T-shirt pockets, which Jewish activists claim evokes a Nazi-era star for Holocaust victims. On Thursday, the Anti-Defamation League in Philadelphia issued a statement outlining the group's outrage at the yellow shirt with a blue-stitched symbol reminiscent of the Star of David that European Jews were forced to wear. No response yet from the company, but perhaps the latest flap will help Urban Outfitters see that they can make all the skinny jeans in China, but it won't do any good if anyone with an inkling to buy them is offended.
Do you find these T-shirts offensive?
