Terrorist Fashion

Freshjive, one of the designers who supplies Urban Outfitters, designed t-shirts depicting a 'victimized' Palestinian child holding a gun and a photo of Arafat with the caption 'the Good Ol' Days'. (Scroll down to see them). Many people wrote letters to both Freshjive and Urban Outfitters. UO, after making this egregious error did the pull the T-shirts from their stores. Freshjive on the other hand has made a public statement denying the fact that he supports terror.

This is the second time Urban Outfitters has made a ridiculous political statement with their merchandise. You'd think they would learn from past experiences.

On a semi-related note, as much as I love fashion, I could never ever work in that field.
