Urban Outfitters Dropped Controversial Depression Shirt, But Is That Enough To Keep Your Business?

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionPollsRetail TherapyUrban OutfittersMental Health

Do YOU still support Urban Outfitters after their latest mishap?

How far is TOO far?

That question seems to come up often in the fashion world!

Urban Outfitters has had it’s fair share of upset customers in the past, for everything from a gang-related shirt to booze-promoting attire and more.

But many have been astonished by the retailer’s latest misstep — the sale of a shirt COVERED in the word “depression”!

After a plethora of complaints from people battling the disorder, the store finally had the shirt pulled from their inventory with the following explanation:

“We did not create the Depression brand logo tee shirt and it most certainly was not a social statement of any kind. It was brought to our attention that customers were offended by the product. Though is was not intended to exploit mental illness, we respectfully removed the product as to not further upset anyone. We’re sorry to those offended by the tee. We were trying to support a small brand, not glamorize mental illness in any way.”

Even if the brand named Depression owed its logo to the idea of an indent, if Urban had just looked at or thought about the shirt for a minute, they probably could’ve seen the controversy coming a mile away.

And when taken into account with all their other offenses in the past, we wanna know:

Dianna Agron shops for knickknacks at Urban Outfitters in Studio City!

Someone's staying busy these days!

Before Dianna Agron attended Amber Riley’s epic holiday concert in West Hollywood last night, she made time for some last minute shopping at Urban Outfitters in Studio City!!

Maybe she wanted to grab something to show her appreciation for her former Glee co-star’s amazing voice??

We don't really know, but according to the paparazzi at the scene, she searched throughout the crowded store for fun novelty gifts, and left with a bag as big as Santa’s on Christmas day!

Spoiler alert for anyone on her Xmas list: she definitely grabbed a Mad Libs calendar!! Shhhh don’t tell! LOLz!

We're also loving her urbany winter outfit! That oversized navy coat with the skinny jeans and boots looks nice and cozy.

Stay warm, lady!

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionBusted!Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters may have accidentally put a Chicago gang sign on one of their shirts!

Urban Outfitters seems to really know how to offend select groups of people with their clothes!

Over the past couple of years they've pissed off the Irish, Jews, LGBT community, Navajo Nation with various merch, and now they’ve found themselves in hot water for trying to sell a shirt with Gangster Disciples symbol printed across the chest.

In case you didn't know, the GD’s are a Chicago gang that was started in the 60’s, and they're not to be messed with.

They're the same group who

It’s about time!

Urban Outfitters is apparently taking a long look at their merchandise after their recent scandal, and have pulled all products, such as the poster (above), pertaining to guerrilla leader Ernesto "Che" Guevara.

Activists have pointed out to the company that Che was actually a violent tyrant and Thor Halvorssen, the founder of the Human Rights Foundation, even wrote an open letter to Urban’s CEO, stating
