Is Urban Outfitters A H8R?
By now most people know that Urban Outfitters owner Richard Hayne is a raging Republican and has donated thousands of dollars to right-wing causes, but what you might not be aware of is that Urban pulled a line of “I support gay marriage” t-shirts in California after only selling them for a week. It’s not a question of politics, really. Designer Tara Littman pointedly asks: “With quite a few pro-Obama shirts in their store and even some anti-McCain products, this clearly isn’t a company that has a problem being politically aligned, so why?” This is an especially important question to ask to ask today on Day Without A Gay, when the gay community is encouraging everyone to call in “gay” to work today and donate time to a cause instead. So, what are your thoughts? Why do you think Urban Outfitters pulled the gay marriage shirts? [Racked]
