I will never again buy ONE article of clothing from Urban Outfitters.
So, I saw on theunpopularopinions blog that someone said the founder of urban outfitters is anti-gay. I didn’t know what to think of that so I looked it up myself. I’ve literally been sitting her for an hour wallowing in more and more disgust as I click on more and more links. Not only are they anti-gay, they’re anti-black, anti-minority, anti-women, and anti-free choice! Its fucking sick!
The founder of Urban Outfitters (Richard Hayne) and his wife donated $13,150 to Rick Santorum. RICK SANTORUM?! The man who wanted to outlaw fucking condoms? The man who said, “I don’t want to make black people’s lives better.” (Direct quote people). He’s a disgusting prick with no compassion for anyone except upperclass white men.
Okay, lets ignore that. They’re also selling cute little Mitt Romney tshirts. Mitt Romney. The man who said that he can relate to blacks because his ancestors owned slaves. The man who said that blacks are freeloaders. Also against contraception and abortion. Also against gay rights.
Okay, lets ignore that. How about the shirt they had with a “black version” of the game monopoly on it. It was called “GHETTOPOLY” and one card on the shirt says, “You get your whole neighborhood addicted to crack. Collect $50.”
WHAT. THE. FUCK. So you’re telling me every time I walked in that store I was unknowingly supporting the conservative agenda? Guys, we gotta start looking into the corporations we support. I learned the hard way. I will not give $1 of my money to Mitt Romney. I feel used, embarrassed, and pissed off. Its not okay to shop there and support conservative politics and conservative economic agendas just because they have cute high waist shorts and tie dye peace tanks. No, stop feeding into it. Don’t be a puppet.
But hey fellow blacks, shop there if you want. Just know that every time you shop there that entire corporation is laughing at you. AT US. I’m appalled and disgusted. Fuck that store and fuck Richard Hayne, the prick.
And don’t take my word for it. Look it up yourself.
EDIT: By the way guys, this isn’t just for black people. Anyone who supports the notion that a person should be able to marry the person they love regardless of gender should be just as pissed off as black people! WOMEN TOO!
Fuck you, Mr. Urban Outfitters
Yes! I’m done with anxiety over not having anything from U.O, I’m joining the boycott. Thank you very much, moral, I’ll take it from here. No more longing for those awesome tees or supercool shoes, I’m never going to buy ANYTHING from Urban Outfitters anyway. Not ever. Fuck you, Richard Hayne, I hope you go to hell for hating people.
“If they're selling clothes, why don't they just worry about clothes? Why do they care what color your skin is or what God you believe in or who you're kissing? If you're selling clothes, just sell the clothes and love anyone who buys from you!”—Lacey, 10, one of my campers, on Richard Hayne, President and CEO of Urban Outfitters
“You start to wonder if the entire hipster movement has been duped into becoming puppets of Hayne's billionaire income. Because if we're all suckers, that just sucks.”—Sharon Clott, in response to CEO of Urban Outfitters Richard Hayne. Article
Urban Outfitters' Vegan Leather Line
Cool. Except Urban Outfitters sucks. Do I really need to re-ignite this fire?
Urban Outfitters promotes negative body image.
Urban Outfitters would rather appease Prop 8 proponents than solidify its stance on equality.
Urban Outfitters has a history of labeling their products in an ignorant, misleading, and potentially offensive manner.
Urban Outfitters mocks the trans community.
Just reminding the vegan community that despite how much you need a pair of vegan leather trendy-as-fuck wedges from your local overpriced hipster breeding ground, Urban Outfitters still sucks !. =3
