Jewish Group Slams Urban Outfitters For Selling "Holocaust Tee"

Urban Outfitters once again finds itself in trouble over an ostensibly insensitive article of clothing — this time a yellow T-shirt featuring a pocket patch the Anti-Defamation League says bears more than a passing resemblance to the yellow Star of David badge worn by Jews during the Holocaust.

"We find this use of symbolism to be extremely distasteful and offensive, and we are outraged that your company would make this product available to your customers," ADL Philadelphia director Barry Morrison wrote in a letter to the Philadelphia Navy Yard-based clothing retailer's CEO, Richard A. Hayne.

The "Kellog Tee" shirt in question — from Danish clothing brand Wood Wood — was still available on the Urban Outfitters website at the time of writing for $100.

No comment as of yet from the company.
