Apparently, Amazon UK allowed T-shirts that played off the famous “Keep Calm And Carry On” slogan used during WWII to be sold on its website. The T-shirts twisted the well-intended phrase to slogans promoting domestic violence, such as “Keep Calm And Hit Her” and “Keep Calm And Rape Them.”
Are we all this de-sensitized? Really? Who thought this was a good idea??
Amazon has now been asked to make a donation to a women’s shelter or similar organization to prove that they aren’t entirely morally bankrupt. Solid Gold Bomb, the company that manufactures the shirts, should do so too.
Or, have their owners go out in public with T-shirts that read “Keep Calm And Kick My Ass.” I bet that would do the trick.
