WOWWWWWW

Haha hey my mom’s best friend was almost murdered that day, thanks Urban Outfitters!

You wouldn’t believe the fucking face I just made this is incredible…


this is literally unbelievable. im legitimately having a difficult time believing this really happened. this is ridiculously absurd

Urban Outfitters is seriously the worst. They’ve had so many Anti-Semetic shirts and if I recall, shirts that glorify eating disorders. I don’t understand how people allow these to even be made, let alone be considered stylish
