PacSun Pulls T-Shirt with Upside-Down American Flag After Outrage


Yesterday was Memorial Day, and it was in that spirit that people weren’t happy with a certain shirt that one PacSun location had in a display window:


Yes, that’s a black shirt with an upside-down American flag on it. And — go figure — lots of people were outraged:

Well, PacSun heard all the complaints and released this statement on its Facebook page:

As a retailer grounded in youth culture, PacSun values artistic and creative expression through the brands that we sell in our stores. Out of respect for those who have put their lives on the line for our country, we have decided to stop selling the licensed flag t-shirt and are removing it from our stores and website immediately. We thank the men and women in uniform for their extraordinary service.

And once again, the 24/7 outrage machine works its magic.
