Forever 21 Released Highly Inappropriate "Rapey" T-Shirt

How about “NO”?

It is not the first time that fast fashion retailers have made the news by producing ethically inappropriate T-shirts. First, there was Zara that produced a children’s shirt similar to what prisoners wore in Nazi concentration camps. And then there was Urban Outfitters with its vintage “Kent State” sweatshirt, the scene of the fatal school shooting in 1970. Adding on to the list today is Forever 21, which produced a men’s T-shirt quoting “Don’t Say Maybe If You Want to Say No.”

The slogan highly suggests rape and the fact that it was even designed in the first place was shocking enough, much less produced and made available for sale. Forever 21 has since halted the sale of the shirt on its website, but you can still see it marked as “Sold Out” under the product listing. Regarding the incident, the company expressed that “Forever 21 strives to exemplify the highest ethical standards and takes feedback and product concerns very seriously. With regards to the t-shirt in question, upon receiving feedback from our customers, we took immediate action to have it removed from our website. We sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended by the product.”
