Really? C'mon, Urban Outfitters!

Urban Outfitters,

I am writing this letter to you after I saw this shirt on

REALLY? Don't play coy, Urban Outfitters. It isn't just a t-shirt. It's what is on the t-shirt. You know that your demographic is girls in their teens and early twenties. You know that you don't cater to the "eat more" sect. This shirt is an a-hole move by some a-hole designer who is stirring up controversy and bad body image issues.

I'm waiting for you to roll out an "Insert Finger Here to Vomit" tee.




  1. Wow, just when I reach a point where I can fit into their clothes, they go and do something to make me never want to shop there. Go figure.
    Hey - "Go figure" would be a better message on a t-shirt!

  2. WOW I am at a loss for words...

  3. How about "Go eff yourself, Urban Outfitters"?

  4. I'm SO with you. Disgusting.

  5. And it's just a horrible looking dumpy t-shirt to being with. :P Seriously, what are they thinking?

  6. What's worse is the model is obviously one of the Auschwitz chic. Not healthy. Not healthy AT ALL!!!

  7. Wow, and that model is practically a poster child for everything that is wrong with media images of thin women.
    Could they not have put that on a model who at least looks healthy? Well, maybe they couldn't find one.
