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.

    this is nothing new at urban outfitters. A lot of their stuff glamorizes shit that shouldnt be glamorized or just looks plain bad. they need to reevaluate the brands and merchandise they sell.

Not that I ever did, but I never will now. Were they also the ones with the period t-shirt? What the fuck?

  • an opinion

    But what I don’t get is the brand Brandy Melvile sells a shirt saying”stressed depressed but well dressed.” Knowing a few people with the shirt is also a bit offensive but they are not the only ones who are often glamorizing shit.
