Taylor Swift sent death threats to the indie t-shirt company Bad Kids Clothing for their new t-shirt featuring Swift’s former boyfriends, reports Fashionista. Swifties started bombarding the company with requests to remove the shirt:
Owner: ‘They keep telling me to take it off the site, but it wasn’t on the site, so I guess they wanted me to take down the picture [from Instagram]. So I took down the picture–I don’t really care, and then they kept going. It got worse and worse. Finally I just responded to one and I was like, ‘It’s gone, what do you want?’ And they were like, ‘Oh, you think just because it’s gone that this is over? Just wait until you see what happens to you.’’
Now they are selling the shirt fors $19.99: ‘Andi and I both had a history of being cyber bullied growing up, and these kids are thinking if they just tell us that they’re going to kill us and that 30 million people are going to attack us, that we would just do what they said. That rubbed us the wrong way.
That’s what all these girls are saying, ’We took Abercrombie down in three hours, obviously we’re going to take you down because we’ve never even heard of you!’’ And I’m just thinking to myself, that’s why you’re not going to take us down, because we don’t have to.
Abercrombie has to because you’re their demographic, but you’re not ours and we’re not this ginormous company so we don’t have to follow any protocol so we’re leaving it up.’
They threatened to burn down the store, to kill the employees with knives and guns, called the women ‘uneducated faggots,’ and told them ‘that everything [they] stood for was worse than Hitler and the assassination of millions of Jews.’
