Urban Outfitters’ Kent State sweatshirt and 7 other controversial clothes E-mail Tweet Facebook Google Plus Linkedin Share icons by Benjamin Snyder @FortuneMagazine September 15, 2014, 5:33 PM EDT Urban Outfitters added to its wardrobe of controversial clothes on Monday by introducing a seemingly blood-stained Kent State University sweatshirt that the retailer soon removed from its Web site. Of course, in 1970, the Ohio National Guard killed four anti-Vietnam war protesters at Kent State University. The public reacted fiercely to the salmon-colored $129 sweatshirt, which was splattered with faux blood spots, by accusing Urban Outfitters of stupidity and poor taste. Kent State, where the pain over the shootings runs particularly deep, said: “May 4, 1970, was a watershed moment for the country and especially the Kent State family. We lost four students that day while nine others were wounded and countless others were changed forever. We take great offense to a company using our pain for the publicity and profit.” Urban Outfitters quickly withdrew the item from sale – only one had been sold, the company said – and apologized. “It was never our intention to allude to the tragic events that took place at Kent State in 1970 and we are extremely saddened that this item was perceived as such,” Urban Outfitters said in a statement. Fortune looked at Urban Outfitters and other retailers that have been accused of poor taste in the past for their clothing. Racism, anti-Semitism and mocking the mentally ill are just some of the fashion faux pas on our list.
