A mom says that shirts are indecent, then goes on to buy them all from a PacSun store is one strange news story trending this week. A mother very upset about a number of “indecent" T-shirts for males that were on display at a local Utah mall decided to take matters into her own hands and get rid of them by literally buying each and every one in stock at the time. The Epoch Times reveals this Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2014, that Judy Cox felt that the shirts — which showcased sexy models scantily clad and in suggestive poses — were too racy for young men to wear.
While shopping over the weekend at Orem’s University Mall in Utah, Judy Cox and her 18-year-old son encountered the risqué T-shirts at a PacSun store. The mom said that the shirts were indecent, and decided to buy them all in order to prevent other young men from becoming enticed by the product showing the female models on front.
Before purchasing the items, Cox went into the PacSun store to file a formal complaint about revealing the shirts at outlet's display window. She said that the shirts featuring sexy models in a number of provocative stances were lewd and improper. However, a store manager replied that the controversial T-shirts could not be formally taken down because approval had not been given from the corporate office for such a swap.
Out of frustration and finding no other way to solve her problem, the upset mom decided to buy all 19 of the T-shirts that were in stock at the PacSun store. Amounting to a hefty total of $567, Cox felt it was the very best alternative. However, the mom annoyed about the “indecent” shirts told a local news source that she intends to return all 19 of the shirts to the chain before the 60-day return allowance period ends in order to get her money back and hopefully prove a point.
Each of the products costs roughly $28 on PacSun’s official website, which offers different styles of beach clothes and similar items for young adults and teens of different ages. Adds the press release on the “Mom says shirts are indecent buys them all” strange news topic:
“These shirts clearly cross a boundary that is continually being pushed on our children in images on the Internet, television and when our families shop in the mall,” Cox wrote in an email.
An employee working at the Utah mall PacSun store said she did not have the authority to talk about the matter and referred any and all questions to PacSun’s company headquarters in Orange County, California. While the shirts might have showcased sexy women, scantily clad in what Judy Cox felt were suggestive poses, the PacSun CEO said that the company is proud of its clothes, which sells items inspired by sports, art, music, and fashion for all teens.
“While customer feedback is important to us, we remain committed to the selection of brands and apparel available in our stores,” Schoenfeld said in an email message.
