A few weeks ago it was JC Penny who had to pull an “offensive” shirt off their shelves. Now Forever 21 has had to pull 3 shirts from their line that have outraged parents. The three shirts all in one way or another seem to be stating that school is not anything too important.
“Skool Sucks” “I love School…not” “Allergic to Algebra”
These 3 shirts caused the uproar that retailers are trying to make girls think that it is not cool to like school. Not that we know many teenagers that like school whether it’s cool or not.
Parents and shoppers protests and complaints on the shirts have forced Forever 21, just like they did for JC Penny, to pull the shirts from sale. The angry parties claim also that there are never shirts like this made for boys and it is a stigma placed solely on women.
If you go to the website now and try to purchase any of these shirts you get an error message claiming the item is “out of stock”.
Do you think these shirts send the wrong message and should be pulled from the shelves?
