When will major brands learn to do their research before releasing offensive items?
Marc Jacobs accidentally released a graffiti-inspired shirt that just so happens to be connected to a Neo-Nazi group.
Thankfully the shirt was pulled as soon as the connection was made, and a rep from Marc Jacobs released the following apology:
“It has been brought to our attention that the imagery on a T-shirt of ours is similar to that used by a band. We were not trying to make a connection to that band or make a statement of any kind. We have removed the stock of the shirt from our own stores and offer our retail partners the same opportunity.”
