Urban Outfitters pulls 'depression' shirt

Urban Outfitters pulled a shirt covered in the word "depression" after outraged customers took to social media to rant. On Jan. 6, 2014, the company tweeted: "We're sorry to those offended by the tee we bought from the @DEPRESSIONcomsg brand. We were trying to support a small brand, not glamorize mental illness in any way." Back in 2010, Urban Outfitters had another run-in with angry shoppers when it tried selling a shirt bearing the phrase "Eat Less."
