Threadless Hysteria!

Posted in Def Leppard,Rock,Threadless by M on April 18, 2007

Blogger Scott Robbin last year chronicled the self-censoring of Threadless, one of many online, ironic t-shirt companies.

Threadless was keeping the web safe—for Def Leppard! They now consider it in bad taste to joke about Rick Allen‘s missing limb.

Robbin has the original t-shirt on his site. Threadless now features this special message:

We have decided to remove this product from our line out of respect to Rick Allen and the band Def Leppard.  We apologize for any undue stress this may have caused.

You know what? I think I would rather have that on a t-shirt….
