The Miami Herald found the designer of Walmart’s Nazi tshirts, a man of Jewish persuasion.
- “Skull emblems are huge sellers these days, so Scott Deutsch had no problem placing 50,000 T-shirts emblazoned with a distinctive version of the gory symbol in Wal-Mart…
”We would never have done that shirt if we had known,” said Deutsch, president of Miami-based Orange Clothing Company, a manufacturer of young men’s apparel. “Furthermore, I’m Jewish.’”
The article goes on to say that Deutch’s company, Orange Clothing Co, found the skull in a “European trend book.”
Just when you thought the story couldn’t get any stranger, or longer, whammo.
The only question is, what to do with the returned shirts cramming Deutch’s warehouses? Perhaps they can insulate his room, in hell. The hell for hack designers. — BEN POPKEN
