That’s what the Anti-Defamation League of Philadelphia seems to think. The organization has taken the hipster clothing chain to task for a T-shirt featuring a Star of David design they say is strikingly similar to one that was used to identify Jews by the Nazis during the Holocaust and was embroidered on concentration camp uniforms.

“We find this use of symbolism to be extremely distasteful and offensive, and we are outraged that your company would make this product available to your customers,” said Barry Morrison, the regional director of the ADL in a letter to Urban’s chairman and cheif executive Richard Hayne.  

The Kellog shirt is by Dutch label Wood Wood, and retails for $100. So far, Urban has yet to respond to the ADL’s claims and the shirt is still available on their site. [ONTD]
