PacSun Comes Under Fire Then Pulls A$AP Rocky's 'Disrespectful' American Flag Tee! See The Shirt HERE!
A$AP Rocky is no stranger to controversy!
Over the weekend, the F*ckin Problems rapper spilled all the deets of his LSD-fueled orgies — and just in time for the release of his latest album, A.L.L.A.!
But that wasn't the only subject of debate regarding the 26-year-old.
PacSun came under fire this Memorial Day weekend for selling a tee featuring the American flag printed upside down from their collab with A$AP Mob.
It wasn't until after a shopper spotted the tee in the window of one of their outlet stores in Alabama that customers demanded a boycott of PacSun for being "disrespectful" and "distasteful".
PacSun has since responded by removing the shirt from stores and online, and even issuing message to their Facebook page:
"As a retailer grounded in youth culture, PacSun values artistic and creative expression through the brands that we sell in our stores. Out of respect for those who have put their lives on the line for our country, we have decided to stop selling the licensed flag t-shirt and are removing it from our stores and website immediately. We thank the men and women in uniform for their extraordinary service."
While the shirt wasn't directly put out by Rocky, he definitely is the face of A$AP Mob. Though what's super interesting is that the collection hit stores nearly a year ago.
Seems the poor timing was what really pushed their customers.
