Notorietees: Shirts With Buzz #2 (Yu Is My Homeboy, I Heart DP, T-Shirt Culture Index (Infographic))

by Travis on June 14, 2012

Another month, another batch of problem tees making waves…

>Japanese fireballer Yu Darvish has emerged as a fan favorite for the Texas Rangers this season and one would-be t-shirt entrepreneur saw an opportunity to leverage his rising profile. Yu’s representatives, as you might imagine, were none too pleased initially, but have since come around now that they’ve negotiated a cut. Image and identity are such fickle mistre$$es… [Deadspin]

Yu talking to me?

>American Airlines rebuked a female passenger last month for her pro-choice slogan tee, only to hastily apologize in the wake of an angry social media backlash. [RH Reality Check]

Something special in the air.

>Dr. Pepper needs to rethink their viral marketing campaigns. Understand why here. [Adland]

Marketing Mishap

>American retailer Target featured Pride tees on its site site last month, a curious development if only because the company has a documented history of supporting political candidates with homophobic platforms. [Buzzfeed]

Expect More, Hate Less

>A student in Mississippi was forced to turn his United States Marine Core tee shirt inside out. Apparently, adults are uncomfortable with dog junk. [Marine Corps Times]

Esprit De Corps

>Finally, a cross-section of tee shirt stereotypes shot through with a modicum of self-depreciating humor. Which one do you identify with? [Laughing Squid]

A Tee For Every Torso
