Ed Hardy Blames Jon Gosselin For Ruining His Clothing Line

Jon Gosselin brought down the Ed Hardy brand

It wasn't bold patterns, the frat boys, or common sense.

Nope, Jon Gosselin is to blame for the downfall of the Ed Hardy brand.

Back in the 2009, the reality TV dad of 8 was seen around town, hitting up yacht parties with founder Christian Audigier, wearing the most atrocious and loudest shirts possible.

The two had actually struck up a friendship and had even licensed some of his art for personalized products. And, what's even more shocking? Jon was in talks of creating an Ed Hardy line for himself.

Luckily, we all narrowly missed that bullet, because Mr. Hardy himself has admitted that Jon's douchiness unfavorable public persona and his endorsement of the product was what really killed the t-shirt brand.

He reveals:

"That Jon Gosselin thing was the nail in the coffin. That’s what tanked it. Macy’s used to have a huge window display with Ed Hardy, and it filtered down and that’s why Macy’s dropped the brand."

He also rips into Audigier, saying:

"Christian worships celebrities so much, he will get next to anyone who is famous for anything. If he could have gotten Charles Manson in a shirt, he would have."

Ouch! Jon Gosselin wasn't well-liked, but he was certainly no Charles Manson!

If there's any positive outlook to this whole thing, let's just be thankful we don't have to see a slew of Ed Hardy shirts on the beach this summer.

    Perhaps the douche bags grew up and realized that they could no longer wear the douche worthy clothes?

    Jon Gosselin also made me fail inorganic chemistry… I know people might not understand, but it's a little thing called "logic"

    I think the downfall may also have been attributed to all the knock-off/copy-cat Ed Hardy shirts.

  4. 4

    I would have look real good in Ed Hardy T-shirts. Just imagine Fat Bastard with Ed Hardy T-shirts!

    It seems they're looking for a scapegoat. Ummmm…ever think it could be the clothes.

    Yeah, that's what did it! Sure! Keep telling yourself that and don't take any blame for your bad product line!

    Gimme a break! There was the stank of douche all over that brand long before Gosselin ever started wearing it!

    the clothes are obnoxiously loud and ugly….don't blame Jon Gosselin. There are just not enough douchebags in the world that want to wear these overpriced, hideous clothes Ed!

    the clothes are ugly! I hate it when clothing lines blame celebs. This reminds me of how that one clothing company blamed The Situation.

    Jon didn't kill it. It committed suicide. That was the worst piece of shit to ever come fro a designer. He killed himself.

    Hard to blame Gosselin, when it was the fact they are just the ugliest ass shirts out there.

    Maybe the fact that they were at Macy's helped it along too.!?
