Urban Outfitters joins retailers using politics to profit
Urban Outfitters, never shy to be evocative in its product development, is currently selling anti-Donald Trump shirts, mugs and stickers at its retail stores.
The company joins a number of retailers that have recently started to capitalize on the 2016 presidential election, including American Apparel’s “Make America Gay Again” T-shirt campaign, a play on Trump’s campaign slogan and an effort to support LBGTQ rights. The Trump garb includes a shirt with the phrase “IDK Not Trump Tho,” a pin that reads “Trump 20Never,” anti-Trump mugs and a book of Trump quotations designed to look like Mao Zedong’s Little Red Book. The gear is currently being sold alongside seemingly pro-Hillary Clinton shirts, including one that reads “Hillary Runnin’ Thangs Tour 2016.”
