Urban Outfitters sweatshirt hate on social media

The Urban Outfitters Kent State sweatshirt has caused a lot of hate on Twitter at the moment for being disrespectful. On sale for $129 US, which has now been removed from the site was a bloodstained sweatshirt with the infamous U.S. College Kent State name on it.

Urban Outfitters has since apologized for selling the sweatshirt with bloodstains, dirt and holes in it. Twitter users believe they were trying to cash in on the schools name, which was best known for the May 4, 1970 shooting where the Ohio National Guard killed four Vietnam War protesters.

The company said they had no intentions to allude to the tragic events that took place at Kent State in 1970, but they also said in reports there is no blood on the sweatshirts, the red stains are just discoloration from the original shade and the holes are just normal wear and tear.

It does not matter what Urban Outfitters have said, because many tweets contained unhappy messages from outraged Twitter users.
