Utah Mom is Offended by ‘Indecent’ Shirts at PacSun She Buys Them All
A mom in Utah was so offended by some "indecent" shirts she saw on display at PacSun, she buys them all just to get them out of the window display. Take a look at what the fuss is over.
Judy Cox of Orem, Utah was birthday shopping at University Mall with her teenage son when she passed by PacSun and saw the display of their new T-shirt line "Visual" which feature scantily clad women in provocative poses.
Cox complained to the store manager about the window display and was told that the T-shirt display couldn't be taken down without approval from the PacSun corporate offices.
Cox decided to solve the problem herself and bough all 19 shirts that were in stock spending a total of $567. Her plans are to return the shirts at the end of the stores 60-day return period.
PacSun CEO Gary Schoenfeld stated in an email statement that the company takes pride in the products it sells, saying,
While customer feedback is important to us, we remain committed to the selection of brands and apparel available in our stores.
Cox contacted Orem city Greg Stephens who told her she had to file a complaint with the police, who would then decide whether it should be passed on to the city attorney.
Orem, which is an ultraconservative community, has a city code that prohibits the display of explicit sexual content, the law defines that as,
Any material that appeals to a prurient interest in sex and depicts nudity, actual or simulated sexual conduct, sexual excitement, or sadomasochistic abuse.
While these shirts seem somewhat offensive, do you think there should be this big of a fuss?
