Topman Pulls Domestic Violence-y “I’m Sorry But You Provoked Me” T-Shirt

Topman, the men’s version of the British chain Topshop, has pulled two super-douchey T-shirts.

One of Topman’s Ts suggests domestic violence with the words up top, “I’m so sorry but …” and then a checklist of excuses like “you provoked me,” “I was drunk,” and “I didn’t mean it.” Ick, right? The other, which you can see after the jump, makes a crack that the “ugly women are dogs” thing with the phrase, “Nice new girlfriend: what breed is she?” Double-ick. Here’s the second T-shirt that Topman pulled:

In a statement, a Topshop spokesperson said the Ts should be seen as “light-hearted”:

“‘We have received some negative feedback regarding two of our printed T-shirts. Whilst we would like to stress that these T-shirts were meant to be light-hearted and carried no serious meaning we have made the decision to remove these from store and online as soon as possible. We would like to apologise to those who may have been offended by these designs.”

Okay, whatever. Enjoy your 30 seconds of free publicity. Most clothing lines would rather have people talking about how cool their products and styles are instead of this, but to each his own.

UGH. Why are so many T-shirt slogans nowadays so douchebaggy?
