Urban Outfitters emoved t-shirt for sale on their website with the word ‘depression’ emblazoned on it because it was trying to make illness into a fashion statement. The same brand in 2010 for sold a T-shirt that said ‘eat less’ and that was removed.
It was marked down to $9.99 from an original price of $59. Urban: ‘For those asking, the tee was designed by a small brand named Depression and we are no longer selling it on our site. People on Twitter were furious about the t-shirt which ‘glamorizes depression.’
I wonder if @UrbanOutfitters think it’s ‘cool’ to have depression or anorexia nervosa? Or is it all about profiting off of mental disorders? the fact that urban outfitters glamorizes depression/ eating disorders really makes me never want to shop there again.
