Kent State Shirt

Urban Outfitters is not pleasing very many shoppers.

The clothing company is on the receiving end of negative backlash after it released a faux-vintage Kent State sweatshirt splattered in blood.

Many believe the shirt is in reference to the May 4, 1970 shootings where four unarmed students protesting the Vietnam War were killed by the Ohio National Guard.

Buzzfeed posted the shirt before it sold out.

The item no longer appears on the company’s website but it is selling on ebay with prices starting at $550.
