What the hell?

Urban Outfitters is charging $24 for an ugly faded t-shirt with "chopstick" writing with the words "Everyone Loves An Asian Girl"!?!?!?!?

Stupid 'Everyone Loves An Asian Girl' shirt Lame ass t-shirt And expensive shit, too!

It's so stupid, I don't even know where to begin the rant...

Evidently, they have "Latin Girl," "Italian Girl," "Catholic Girl" tees, and a "Jewish Girl" and "Jewish Boy" one, too.

I smell stupid publicity stunt (ala Aberfuckme & Bitch), or "edginess" gone idiotic, or just plain stupidity. Who would wear a shirt like that? Not me, thankyouverymuch... I'll just stick to my DIRT-TEE!

Better yet, I will go to my friend Ryan Suda's site and get a blacklava tee... maybe another BITCHY KAT TEE (ala bigbadchinesemama, Kristina Wong!). Not only are they cooler, and not fucking racist, they are also priced better than those UO rip-offs!

maybe joz should get a t-shirt that says "everyone loves jozjozjoz" and then we'd ALL be happy ;)

A Friend bought me the "Jewish Girl' shirt, and I am not sure how I feel about it, either.
Joz-- If you get the Asian Girl one, let's swap and wear them walking down the street together.

now that just deserves a O.o right there. it's almost as bad as seeing an asian guy on my campus wearing a shirt that said, "i can speak english" on it.

personally, i'd rather get the catholic girl tee and dress up all skanky-lookin' :P

Posted by: Steen at March 19, 2004 05:19 PM

Sickening, yes, but the more scary thing is that people actually buy that shit. Can you see me rolling my eyes?

And no, I didn't get a burrito, sadly. I cry.

fire up the barbecue, cuz somethin's about to get torched...

Posted by: Yoshi! at March 19, 2004 05:46 PM

oh, and WTF does it mean when it says, "show your pride"?!??!?!!

Posted by: Yoshi! at March 19, 2004 05:48 PM

Shouldn't the model be at least Asian?

Posted by: seyd at March 19, 2004 06:06 PM

This is as stupid as their "Voting is for Old People" t-shirt:

http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/shopping/product/detailmain.jsp?itemID=3740&itemType=PRODUCT&iMainCat=163&iSubCat=173&iProductID=3740

Thanks for the heads-up.

Posted by: Koganuts at March 19, 2004 06:29 PM

I was going to say the something about how there is no corresponding "Asian Boy" shirt.

And also, check out the other shirts... a PIZZA for the Italian shirt, a MUG OF BEER for the German shirt, a ROSARY for the Catholic shirt.

And why is there nothing for our African American brothas & sistas?

That's it. UO is stupider than A&F. I think I'm going to do some shopping at http://www.blacklava.net instead

Sheesh.

Ugh...You know, its only going to be a matter of time before I start seeing those shirts around my campus. I hope my sister does not see that, because she has this huge "I am asian, and I love it" thing going on, which is so great, but she would actually buy that shirt not thinking about how it can be offensive.

Posted by: Liv at March 19, 2004 08:38 PM

I don't think there is anything really wrong with the shirt, but then I'm not Asian. Apparently either is the model.
Maybe her girlfriend is Asian.
OK, it's silly.

Posted by: zenwanderer at March 19, 2004 08:43 PM

Aberfuckme & Bitch...that's a good one. And accurate too; all the kids who wore it in my high school were so stuck up it wasn't funny.

Posted by: Robert W. Leu at March 20, 2004 06:33 PM

Yeah, that's kind of how I feel absolutely EVERY St. Patrick's Day when the fuckwitted marketing for every fuckwitted bar across the country puts out radio bits featuring a leprechaun with a HORRIBLE Irish brogue talking about strippers/wet t-shirt contests/corned beef (honestly, I've never eaten corned beef, nor does my Gram cook it) and the accompanying jokes about how c'mon, drink more beer, all *real* Irishmen are raging fucking alcoholics who drink TONS AND TONS AND TONS of green beer!

Bite me, people. Everyone loves an Irish girl, especially when she teams up with her Asian and Italian sisters and they bludgeon you with pint glasses, chopsticks and rolling pins. Yeah.

Posted by: Natalie at March 20, 2004 09:39 PM

This is as bad as whichever company did the Ganesh on the sandals thing....sheeeesh. And people are buying these shirts???

Posted by: Meeta at March 22, 2004 01:37 PM

Apparently A&F thought Urban Outfitters has stolen their thunder so they decided to come out with an "It's all Relative in West Virginia" T-shirt - http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2004-03-23-tshirts_x.htm

Posted by: Lucy at March 23, 2004 09:17 AM

...dont take me as a dumbass or anything but whats wrong with the shirt? how is it offensive?? why wouldnt anyone buy that shirt? i thinks kool.

Posted by: shirlyy at April 5, 2004 09:11 AM

ya i'm wondering the same thing...i'm half asian and my friends and i were thinking about getting that shirt...but we couldn't figure out why it is offensive...of course it's probably really obvious but i'd really like to know why it's offensive because if it is then we won't buy it

Posted by: Jacquie at May 24, 2004 02:01 PM

What's with the "chopstick" writing. I wonder if Urban Outfitters realizes that Asian includes Middle Eastern as well. Stop going with the stereotype that Asians are only Chinese, japanese, etc.

Posted by: Marie at July 4, 2004 07:35 AM

erm what seems to b the problem, i dont c how it is offensive? please explain to me?

hey do u know where i can get the " everyone loves alatin girl shirt" i've seen them on girls but never seen them in tha stores email me back i what to buy one from a store thanks!

Posted by: margarita at October 26, 2004 02:08 PM

umm..so yeah, im asian and i dont find anything offensive about it. actually, im even thinking about buying it. you guys really do overanalyze things. if you're not even asian, then you can't judge. get over it, seriously. sheesh.

Posted by: anonymous at November 20, 2004 04:07 PM

Yea i agree, u guys are making a big deal over some shirt. It only acknowledges the fact that there are more than one different culture here in America. Also, it should be wonderful to see that another race or type of religion is proud of who and what he/she is.

Posted by: Steve at November 30, 2004 09:19 PM

I too am half Asian and own the shirt and see nothing wrong with it... sadly some of you spend your time bitching about it.. if you don't like it, don't buy it.. if its too expensive go to a cheaper store.. my god what does it matter if they make a shirt and price it at 24$??? no one is making you buy it.

Posted by: kay30000 at December 18, 2004 02:32 PM

$24? that's not even expensive.

Posted by: Tracy at December 29, 2004 03:38 AM

I'm half Asian and half Irish and I own both shirts! I think they are comfy, first of all. Secondy, they are a good conversation starter for me because I don't look Asian or Irish, so whenever I wear them people always ask me if it's true. It certainly doesn't offend me.

Posted by: Melissa at January 11, 2005 07:55 AM

I don't see anything offensive about the shirts. In all honesty it's more of a cultural pride thing with the shirts and if you think that someone being proud of their roots is offensive then I'm sorry, but I suppose that just proves how little tolerance people have for those who are different.

Posted by: Nikka at January 19, 2005 10:06 PM

Wow. You people have absolutely nothing productive to do with your time, do you? I'm asian, and I don't think that shirt is offensive. The whole problem with this country is that everyone is so paranoyed of racism, even when there isn't any. It's not like anyone's making you buy it. What are you going to do, riot? I just think it's cute. Good Lord.

Posted by: Anna at January 22, 2005 02:11 PM

The only reason i bought the everybody loves a latin girl shirt is because i'm taking latin in school, i also do have a keychain too but the asian, jewish, catholic ones are a little too religious. i'm not saying i'm another stuck up a&f shopper but it wasa good idea. but 24 dollars is a lot for just a shirt that will probally fall apart in like a week. i didn't buy thr shirt at urban outfitters but i got it online for 15, i still thing a&f and urban outfitters need to cut their prices in half

Posted by: lauren at January 25, 2005 05:48 PM

you're fucking stupid ass hell. go to hell bitch!

Posted by: nina at April 20, 2005 11:59 AM

hey i wear abercrombie and fitch...what is your fucking problem? no one cares what you want to wear....i'm asian, too and i honestly will purchase that shirt, cause it's awesome, you're just mad because no one made a shirt to suit your pathetic ass. grow up, and who cares what you think, atleast you don't have one...so why do you even care to worry? fucking stupid.

Posted by: nina at April 20, 2005 12:02 PM

I think ya'll are too paranoid... like someone else said earlier. It's a damn shirt. That's it. I'm Jewish and don't think it's too religious. Personally, I think it's funny. I never see "Jewish Pride" clothes anywhere so it's frikkin hilarious. And about A&F... I don't wear their shit but there's nothing wrong with it. If they wanna make a stupid shirt, GET OVER IT! Many will agree with me when I say get a life and stop worrying about clothes. There's more important things to worry about.

Posted by: becca at June 9, 2005 08:29 PM

OMFG what kind of a fucking dumb ass do you have to be to start a blog about how much you hate everyone loves logo t-shirts seriously it's people like you that fuck it up for everyone and why do you hate abercrombie so much? is it because they don't carry your size? sorry but just because you are fat doesn't mean jack shit if that's the reason you are hating on them then why don't you just stick to shopping at places like torrid or some other crap and I don't believe paying $24 for a t-shirt is too much if you find that expensive then maybe you should find a better paying job get over yourself everyone is entitled to shop where they want and wear whatever on their chest... what are you going to do next hate on lacoste for selling $90 polos? seriously go do something productive with your time like hit up the gym so u can actually shop at places like abercrombie or hollister.... and just to let you know I work at hollister which is the sister store to abercrombie and I am a frequent buyer at both places!
