Today -Streetwear brand Bstroy is facing backlash after debuting their latest clothing collection.
The New York-based brand unveiled its spring 2020 collection at a fashion show earlier this week, and many Instagram users are calling some of the designs “disgusting” and “tasteless” in response. The garments at the center of the controversy? A series of sweatshirts embroidered with the names of several school shootings locations, including Sandy Hook, Columbine, Virginia Tech and Marjory Stoneman Douglas.
Each of the sweatshirts also features tattered details and distressing that resemble bullet holes.
Wow. Hey Bstroy, be less f*cking tone deaf. This isn't "cool" or "trendy" or "art", it's a shitty thing to do and you have put the final nail in the coffin of normalizing the killing of children in schools. Congratulations you bunch of scumbags.
"Bro, this will get people talking about us, I promise! Put bullet holes on the sweaters! We'll release other shitty clothes too but the school shooting hoodies are gonna create a buzz! It's good for business!"
A bunch of goddamn insensitive idiots running this "streetwear" brand. Know that if you wearing this thing in public, you're probably getting hit in the face. Or worse. But enjoy your clicks and your fifteen seconds. That's all you were after any way.
Oh, and get out of my face with this bullshit mantra you use as an excuse to create this line. It boils down to this brand wanting to make a splash and some money, which is what we're all trying to in life, right? But going the way of profiting off American tragedies to make a buck? Not cool. You gonna make 9/11 shirts next? A charred t-shirt with the last words of some poor American saying goodbye to his wife in a voicemail? Or is that too far? It's the same damn thing. Shame on everyone who had a part in this. Even the eight people who showed up to this "runway show." All of you are guilty.
