One of the risks of being a fashion designer is going too far. It’s one thing to make a statement to grab some attention, but it’s a completely different thing to outright offend the masses.
That’s exactly what these brands did.
You’d think that someone along the production line would have appealed the concepts, but somehow, these companies allowed these prints and t-shirts to go all the way to sale.
Here are some of the most controversial and offensive t-shirts ever sold by a popular brand.
1. Urban Outfitters’ Depression glamorizing crop top.
2. Rocawear’s ‘Occupy All Streets’, which facetiously trivialized the Occupy Wall Street movement in New York.
3. Zara’s children’s “Sheriff” shirt, which strongly resembled Holocaust concentration camp uniforms.
4. Urban Outfitters’ pro-ana ‘Eat Less‘ shirt
5. Abercrombie & Fitch’s racist Asian t-shirt collection.
6. Urban Outfitters’ bloody Kent State ‘revival’ sweatshirt.
