JC Penny pulls controversial t-shirt

JCPenney has agreed to pull a girls’ T shirt for sale on its website that said, "I'm too pretty to do homework so my brother has to do it for me." The accompanying product description didn’t help matters, either: "Who has time for homework when there's a new Justin Bieber album out? She'll love this tee that's just as cute and sassy as she is." The shirt quickly became a viral sensation, with people tweeting in disgust and signing an online petition for the shirt to be removed from shelves. JCPenney said in a statement Wednesday that the shirt “does not send an appropriate message” and that the department-store chain would stop selling it immediately.

    This is 2011, isn't it? Apparently JCP did not notice the past 50 years.

    Come on, the shirt is cute. Some people are too sensitive.

      Have to disagree with you, BeckaKnows. Is that what you want to be teaching your 5-year old daughter? Your 15-year old daughter? Your son?

      Look back a few days ago at what our kids learn... http://www.buxr.com/topic/how-.....cover_5385

      We need to smarten up as a society and stop talking dumb.

    I think it would be fine if you put age restriction at the point of sale. Anyone 12 or older will see the dark humor behind it. Smile

    I like how the product description mentions Justin Bieber... it actually looks like a shirt that Justin Bieber should be wearing.
