UK's Retailer, ASOS In Hot Water For 'Slave' Tee Shirt

Posted On: February 25, 2016

Earlier this month, United Kingdom's retailer ASOS and streetwear label/brand, Wasted Heroes came under fire for a collection of 'Slave' shirts they put on the market to sell. 

The shirts caused people to raise an eyebrow but what really had them hot and bothered, was when both ASOS and Wasted Heroes showcased a Black male model wearing the slave shirt and displayed it on social media. The public was not having it and were outrage, especially on Twitter.

Unable to handle the heat, ASOS and Wasted Heroes took all the slave shirt off their websites. A representative from ASOS went on Twitter to issue a statement about the matter and informed the public they would investigate the sellers and manufacture of the shirts, and how the shirts violated their policies.

"Marketplace is a collection of Independent sellers who must agree to our terms and conditions when they join. Whenever we find a product that violates our policies we remove it immediately. There is also a “report this item” link under every product picture."

Wasted Heroes who designed the shirt, issued an apology but however, stated the slave word on the shirt meant "slave for fashion." 

Things that make you go hmmm.
