This is Richard Hayne, President and CEO of Urban Outfitters. He’s also a supporter of Rick Santorum and donated over $13,000 to him. He’s against gay marriage and abortion.His company pulled a pro-gay shirt back in 08, they also blatantly ripped off an Etsy designers work, featured a t-shirt for women that said “eat less” and most recently had a card with a “tranny” slur on in.Why do you shop at this store? I imagine because you weren’t aware of these facts. Now you are, so stop shopping there.

Also here’s an example of the many tasteless, shitty things UO has sold that have been pulled in the past from their shelves and the people they’ve ripped off that we know of.

wow okay(reblogs because i know people who shop here and oh god :( )

The world is a dick

Guess I won’t be shopping here anymore

I’d heard that UO was antigay… well, I guess a company can’t be antigay, but the head of it can be. Anyway, I’d heard such things and I’m not sure if it’s what subconsciously made me stop going at the time, but I will say this: One major factor that may help you stop shopping there is that not only is their CEO homophobic and antiabortion, their prices are outrageous. Just think: you can stop supporting one antigay CEO AND save money! Not to mention their products stopped being worth a damn around 5 years ago. You could probably make a similar product to what they sell now if you went to a thrift store, bought a dress there, and used some scissors on it. Hell, add some ugly chunky old lady buttons. There. Why are you spending $300 on it from the UO?

Is someone compiling political/human rights/ethical/philosophical issues of all big companies somewhere? It doesn’t have to be only anti-gay and anti-abortion issues… why not just collect as much information as you can and let the consumer browse corporations by ethical issue?  Then companies like Urban Outfitters wouldn’t slide through the cracks. 
Seems like a good Startup Weekend kind of thing for someone to do, if they haven’t already. I think the day is here where political accountability is an acceptable requirement for consumers to expect from their corporations, right?
Of course, those who don’t have the same beliefs as you could use the tool to boycott the opposite companies. And the market will continue to evolve.
