Would you wear this?
It's a Kent State sweatshirt with what looks like splattered blood, and get this--it was selling for $129 on Urban Outfitters website and it sold out!
Some are saying the faux vintage sweatshirt is a not-so-subtle reference to the notorious shootings at Kent State University in 1970 that took the lives of four students.
Urban Outfitters quickly removed the sweatshirt off of its website after a firestorm of complaints, saying the company "sincerely apologizes for any offense."
Kent State also released a statement saying: "We take great offense to a company using our pain for their publicity and profit."
