ADL Slams Urban Outfitters Over 'Holocaust' T-shirt

Urban outfitters advertises yellow t-shirt with patch resembling Star of David worn by Jews during the Holocaust.

The Anti-Defamation League has accused Urban Outfitters of selling a t-shirt that resembles the yellow Star of David worn by Jews during the Holocaust.

"We find this use of symbolism to be extremely distasteful and offensive, and we are outraged that your company would make this product available to your customers," ADL Philadelphia director Barry Morrison wrote in a letter to the Philadelphia Navy Yard-based clothing retailer's CEO, Richard A. Hayne, according to a report by Gawker on Friday.

The clothing outlet's website says the stitched patch detailing comes from Danish label "Wood Wood", hence the style name "Wood Wood Kellog Tee."

At the time of publication, the t-shirt was still available for $100 on the company's website.
