Pac Sun had this A$AP Mob shirt on display during Memorial Day Weekend as a part of their sale, and naturally some people got offended.
People found this shirt offensive due to the upside-down American flag and Anarchy symbol on the sleeve. They thought that it was inappropriate for Pacsun to display that on the weekend that America honors its men and women that have died to protect the “Flag” in a sense.
After many angry Facebook posts and people vowing to boycott Pacsun, the company put this statement out on their 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.
