Tip for retailers: If you’re trying to make money disrespecting the American Flag – especially on Memorial Day Weekend – just hope James Woods doesn’t hear about. Or, for that matter, thousands of other patriots on Twitter.
PacSun, a national clothing retailer aimed at teens and young adults was selling a black t-shirt with a graphic of the American flag upside down in stores and online this past Memorial Day weekend. A woman saw the display at her local Pacific Sunwear store in Foley, Alabama, and posted it to Facebook where it went viral. This elicited a strong reaction from others calling for a boycott on the retailer for this insensitivity, particularly on a patriotic holiday.
