What is up with all the domestic violence references lately?
First there was the Canadian hair salon ad, then the Tyler Shields photo and now this.
Topshop's brother label Topman was forced to pull a shirt that mad fun of domestic violence after being inundated with complaints of their Facebook page.
The company issued a statement shortly after, saying:
"We have received some negative feedback regarding two of our printed T-shirts. Whilst we would like to stress that these T-shirts were meant to be light-hearted and carried no serious meaning, we have made the decision to remove these from store and online as soon as possible. We would like to apologise to those who may have been offended by these designs."
The other shirt they are referring to is one that compared women to dogs: "Nice New Girlfriend, What Breed Is She?".
