A fashion company called Teespring has come under fire after it was discovered that their website is selling pro-rape t-shirts.
And when we say pro-rape, we’re talking designs like ‘Eat, Sleep, Rape, Repeat, and ‘No means no but if I’m drunk…’. Now before you start wondering who in the hell actually sat down in a meeting and came up with these awful designs, apparently Teespring is a platform which allows people to turn their ideas into products.
So basically some random people design and launch products and when you buy something from the site, the profits are sent to that person or to a charity of their choice. Teespring then makes the product for you.
What is worrying is that this ‘Eat, Sleep, Rape, Repeat’ design is one of the site’s best sellers. And although Teespring will remove a campaign if it’s got a copywriting issue, it appears that they’re totally cool with these pro-rape designs as it’s not in violation of their policies. Well I guess that’s that then.
For more of the same, here’s the time Walmart were in the sh*t for selling these Nazi-themed mugs.
