A couple of months ago, Urban Outfitters was forced to yank a certain FreshJive t-shirt from its stores because it depicted a Palestinian boy crouched and holding a large gun with the word "Victimized" written nearby him. Obviously, a few people didn't take this fashion statement too lightly.
But neither does the creator of the t-shirt, Rick Klotz, who said via his blog: "...I disagree that expressing concern for the children of Palestine is the same as "Jew hating". That knee jerk reaction is consistent with the "with us or against us" nonsense we have experienced too much of during the last several years. To be clear: I believe there are victims on all sides of this conflict."
These comments come after members from the Jewish Defense League (a mom, two kids, and presumably two adorable grandparents) showed up at Reserve/ Fresh Jive in Fairfax to boycott Mr. Klotz's business establishment.
The Arab Parrot has written a hilarious and might I add very epic first-hand account of what went down on the day in question that's worth looking at, if only to see how Jeremy Scott oddly found his way into this situation. Bobby Hundreds, also acting as an on-the-scene reporter, has footage documenting the whole ordeal.
For those who have a ADD, a little Fresh Jive madness via Youtube after the jump (NSFW).
