PHILADELPHIA, PA – Urban Outfitters has issued an apology for offering a limited edition shirt featuring characters from the anime My Little Sister Can’t be this Cute (Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai) after a wave of online backlash. This is the latest in a long line of incidents involving the clothing store.
“Urban Outfitters wishes to sincerely apologize to anyone offended by this product,” a press release issued by the retailer read. “We simply chose some cute looking anime figure and had no idea they were tied to such gutter trash. We pledge to take greater care with our choice of characters in the future.”
