Irish Objections

Urban Outfitters, the wannabe hipster fashion purveyor based in Philadelphia, has a penchant for offending minority groups. The most recent stir is over merchandise introduced in advance of this year’s St. Patrick’s Day, which plays off the stereotype of the Irish Drunk. Other groups antagonized by UO in the past include Native Americans, African Americans, Jews, and Mexicans. Of course, UO isn’t the only retailer to get in trouble for controversial wares.
