One Million Moms Strikes Again! Goes After Urban Outfitters!

Urban Outfitters Girls Kissing One Million Moms

Those 40,000 One Million Moms are at it again!

The group, who highly opposed Ellen DeGeneres’ role as the JCPenney spokeswoman earlier this year, have launched another attack — this time, at clothing retailer Urban Outfitters!

One Million Moms ranted on their website about the picture (above), stating:

"The April 2012 catalog from Urban Outfitters has begun arriving in home mailboxes the last couple of days. On page two of this catalog is a picture of two women kissing in a face holding embrace! The ad and catalog are clearly geared toward teenagers. The content is offensive and inappropriate for a teen who is the company's target customer."

GASP! Two girls kissing…seriously?!? How ridiculous!

We think these moms should pick up some OTHER hobbies in their free time, like maybe teaching themselves some tolerance, perhaps?! Just a suggestion.

We hope they end up dropping this case just as they did with Ellen’s!!

Urban Outfitters' "Tranny" Greeting Card Sparks Outrage

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayUrban Outfitters

urban-outfitters-transphobic-greeting-card-jack-and-jill-rhyme-2.jpg

Oops they did it again!

After successfully pissing off Irish Americans, Urban Outfitters is already offending another group: the LGBT community.

Advocates are up in arms over what Urban describes as a "charming" transphobic greeting card based off the classic Jack & Jill nursery rhyme. The card reads:

Jack and Jill,
Went up the hill,
So Jack could see Jill's fanny,
But Jack got a shock,
And an eyeful of cock,
Because Jill was a closet tranny.

The card was only available on UO's UK website and has since been yanked from the website sold out.

So far no comment from Urban Outfitters.

Thoughts???

Irish Americans are not okay with Urban Outfitter's newest collection of St. Patrick's Day clothing.

Finding the clothes offensively perpetuating negative stereotypes, letters are pouring in asking the retailer to pull the line.

Even congressmen are getting involved!

Shoppers Stampede Into An Urban Outfitters On Black Friday

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueRetail TherapyUrban Outfitters

This is insane!!!

Are ANY deals worth getting hurt for? Especially at Urban Outfitters?

One savvy customer, who decided to watch the madness from afar, filmed a stampede of people taking over an Urban Outfitters at the Thousand Oaks Mall in California this past Friday.

Even the theft detectors looked like they were about to fall.

We’re hoping no one was hurt or trampled over, though with this many people barging in, it’s hard to tell.
