TopMan Tshirts - removed from stores.

    TopMan has had to remove a range of printed tshirts featuring slogans that, to some, are too offensive.

    For me, I've seen worse - a lot worse. I've got to think that it's only because it's a national chain like TopMan that they're being removed. Any other local tshirt shop wouldn't hesitate to keep these on their shelves.

    What was Topman thinking with these T-shirts? | Life and style | The Guardian

    What do you think?

    I wouldn't personally wear them but I don;t find them offensive. As you say political correctness gone crazy simply because it's a larger store. I have seen far worse on tshirts.

    When I was an angst-ridden teenager that hated the world I used to have a t-shirt that said 'WANKERS' in huge lettering like Walkers crisps.

    They didn't like that one much at college!

    I don't see anything wrong with these to be honest.

    Frankly I think t-shirts like these are important. They help you identify the blokes who are most likely to glass you in the face at the end of a night out.

    TBH, I can see why the 'you provoked me' has been pulled but the other one is ok.

    It's always seems to be women of a certain age that complain about this sort of thing. Usually just after they've finished calling into the Wright Stuff and just before Loose Women starts...

    Like Paul, I had t-shirts in my youth that would probably cause these PC fanatics to choke to death on their M&S cucumber sandwiches, and nobody minded back then so why should a tshirt with a bit of light hearted humour cause offence? bloody silly!..

    I think Twitter is partly to blame for this as it makes it incredibly easy to complain about something, which can be a good thing if it is for a good cause (not in this case, its only a tshirt ffs!).

    Oh Dear!

    Sounds like the Nanny State is alive and well.
