In the words of Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers, really? Who ever thought this T-shirt was a good idea?
JCPenney is pullinga girls t-shirt selling on its website that says across the front:”I’m too pretty to do homework so my brother has to do it for me.” The accompanying description is just as bad – really, who thought ofthis?”Who has time for homework when there’s a new Justin Bieber album out? She’ll love this tee that’s just as cute and sassy as she is.”In a statement today, JCPenney said:
“JCPenney is committed to being America’s destination for great style and great value for the whole family. We agree that the Too pretty t-shirt does not deliver an appropriate message, and we have immediately discontinued its sale. Our merchandise is intended to appeal to a broad customer base, not to offend them. We would like to apologize to our customers and are taking action to ensure that we continue to uphold the integrity of our merchandise that they have come to expect.”
