Urban Outfitters is no stranger to scandal. With the recent news of the Kent State Sweatshirt with what looked like blood splattered across it, here is an article that is relatively recent about the Urban Outfitters salon entitled “Hairroin”. To promote this pop up New York City salon with the slogan “Addicted to Style”, Urban Outfitters passed out pens in the shape of hypodermic needles. Not only is this extremely insensitive but I believe the glamorization of drugs and addiction is exactly what we don’t need in today’s society. It is this type of cultural insensitivity that is seriously making me question giving any of my money to them by buying their products.
