Well, this is an unusual state of affairs; the city of Liverpool takes offence at a t-shirt.
What features does the offensive t-shirt have that has insulted the normally stoic Scousers?
It’s red, has the number 96 and the title of a Bob Marley song printed on the back.
I think you’ll agree this is an excellent case for us to consider making an exception to the principle that freedom of speech is paramount. Real harm could occur if people were to be seen walking around in public with such an egregious display of offence on their torsos.
For those who may be confused as to the reasons why Topman’s t-shirt is so terrible, some background;
96 Liverpool football fans died in a crowd crush in 1989 at the Hillsborough stadium.
Liverpool Football Club’s colour is red.
Get over yourselves Liverpool. You don’t have a copyright on the number 96 and the colour red.
Perhaps, if you are the grieving family of one of the victims of the Hillsborough disaster, you should consider not answering the phone to journalists seeking a renta-quote 30 years later and, instead, get on with your life.
