Kate Moss-Inspired “Nothing Tastes As Good As Skinny Feels” Kid’s Shirt Banned

You’ve got to wonder, sometimes, what marketing people are thinking when they make decisions like the one Brit company Zazzle made to allow a children’s T-shirt to be sold with the words “Nothing Tastes As Good As Skinny Feels.” When the T first came to light, Zazzle claimed that it was simply “a custom products platform, it enables all users to create their own products that feature their own content.

Kate Moss-Inspired “Anorexia” Tees Now On Sale In Children’s Sizes

A T-shirt inspired by Kate Moss‘ controversial personal motto, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels,” is being sold on a UK website and marketed to children. As you can imagine, people are outraged, especially those who work for the campaign, Beating Eating Disorders (BEAT). The organization called for a ban on the “dangerous” tees. The website selling the line of “size-zero slogan” merchandise, Zazzle, declined to share their opinion of the T-shirts. “Zazzle is a custom products platform, it enables all users to create their own products that feature their own content. In this way, Zazzle is an outlet for users to express their personal opinions and viewpoints,” said a spokesman for the company. Which of their users believes that it’s appropriate to design a T-shirt like this for kids? And even more pressing: who is buying them? A parent who would spend money to buy this shirt for their child must be a cuckoo bird. What do you think? Should these T-shirts get 86′d? Or do I need to lighten up? If there’s some irony I’m missing, please alert me. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
