Solid Gold Bomb founder Michael Fowler posted a statement on the company’s website saying he was “extremely sorry” for the T-shirts promoting rape and domestic violence being sold on Amazon’s U.K. website:
“We simply do not produce poor humor or offensive products,” Fowler wrote. “As a father, husband, brother and son, I would never promote such product in our company and it was clear to see this when looking across the millions of T-shirts that we offer or can produce on demand. Had these items ever sold, we would have immediately pulled the series and are doing so on our own and Amazon channels worldwide.”
This comes as domestic violence continues to increase in the U.S. and around the world. This is reprehensible on so many levels. The statement from the company may have come a little too late because the outrage continues on Twitter. Solid Gold Bomb said the slogans were computer-generated and they did not deliberately create them.
