The Worst Yet!! Urban Outfitters Takes Inappropriate To Disgusting New Level With Blood-Splattered Kent State Sweatshirt — WTF!?!

hell no

No. Just no.

Urban Outfitters has found themselves in a LOT of trouble for the inappropriate apparel they've hawked in the past, and they never seem to learn from their mistakes.

They've tried to sell shirts that look like concentration camp uniforms, they've sold tees that glorify depression and gangs, and much much more.

But their latest slip-up just might be the worst one EVER.

The retailer has been selling a faux vintage sweatshirt with a Kent State logo on it, and the fabric appears to be covered in blood stains.

In case you forgot, Kent State was the scene of a bloody massacre in 1970 when four unarmed students were killed by the Ohio National Guard for protesting the Vietnam War. The sweatshirt seems to be a reference to that tragic event.

To see the sweatshirt in question and what Kent State University had to say about it, keep reading:

Fashion Retailer Under Scandal For Kids' Shirt Resembling Holocaust Prisoner Uniforms

zara holocaust shirt

Wow. Just…wow.

Remember that time Urban Outfitters was criticized for selling a shirt with a patch resembling the Star Of David, similar to the one Jewish people were forced to wear under Hitler's reign in Nazi Germany?

Well, apparently Zara doesn't remember that incident, because they recently tried to sell a shirt with a comparable patch.

Unfortunately, Zara's version was much, much worse because the six-pointed star was yellow and sewn onto blue and white striped fabric — which just happens to make the shirt look almost identical to the uniforms Jewish prisoners had to wear in WWII concentration camps.

Obviously customers were outraged, but Zara was quick to respond via Twitter:

rachel bilson preggo shopping urban outfitters

Rachel Bilson is all sorts of pregnant, full of future mini Hayden Christensen!

But what will be the gender of this future celebaby?

It's gonna be… a girl!!

We're so happy for them!

We were even happier to see Rachel out and about, doing some shopping at Urban Outfitters in L.A.

She was hanging with a female friend of hers, and they must've been having a great day because Rachel was glowing!

She's so beautiful and she just looks so dang happy. We guess retail therapy is very effective.

We can't wait to see that cute lil baby!

Urban Outfitters Dropped Controversial Depression Shirt, But Is That Enough To Keep Your Business?

Do YOU still support Urban Outfitters after their latest mishap?

How far is TOO far?

That question seems to come up often in the fashion world!

Urban Outfitters has had it’s fair share of upset customers in the past, for everything from a gang-related shirt to booze-promoting attire and more.

But many have been astonished by the retailer’s latest misstep — the sale of a shirt COVERED in the word “depression”!

After a plethora of complaints from people battling the disorder, the store finally had the shirt pulled from their inventory with the following explanation:

“We did not create the Depression brand logo tee shirt and it most certainly was not a social statement of any kind. It was brought to our attention that customers were offended by the product. Though is was not intended to exploit mental illness, we respectfully removed the product as to not further upset anyone. We’re sorry to those offended by the tee. We were trying to support a small brand, not glamorize mental illness in any way.”

Even if the brand named Depression owed its logo to the idea of an indent, if Urban had just looked at or thought about the shirt for a minute, they probably could’ve seen the controversy coming a mile away.

And when taken into account with all their other offenses in the past, we wanna know:

Dianna Agron Is Urban-Chic At Urban Outfitters!

Dianna Agron shops for knickknacks at Urban Outfitters in Studio City!

Someone's staying busy these days!

Before Dianna Agron attended Amber Riley’s epic holiday concert in West Hollywood last night, she made time for some last minute shopping at Urban Outfitters in Studio City!!

Maybe she wanted to grab something to show her appreciation for her former Glee co-star’s amazing voice??

We don't really know, but according to the paparazzi at the scene, she searched throughout the crowded store for fun novelty gifts, and left with a bag as big as Santa’s on Christmas day!

Spoiler alert for anyone on her Xmas list: she definitely grabbed a Mad Libs calendar!! Shhhh don’t tell! LOLz!

We're also loving her urbany winter outfit! That oversized navy coat with the skinny jeans and boots looks nice and cozy.

Stay warm, lady!

Lauren Conrad Goes Shopping With Her Engagement Ring In El Lay

Lauren Conrad takes her brand new engagement ring shopping!

Shopping is so much more fun with your brand new engagement ring in tow!

Lauren Conrad hit up Urban Outfitters in El Lay on Sunday, looking California cool in dark wash skinnies and a fuzzy white sweater with sleeves just long enough to cover her new bling from fiance William Tell.

But we still got a peek! And we're happy to report it's as shiny as ever!

LC's other awesome — though not as awesome — accessories included a Miu Miu shoulder bag and scalloped Chloe flats.

Congrats again and again, Lauren!
