Amazon faces backlash over 'grossly irresponsible' pro-anorexia hoodie.

ADVERTISING

Your favorite website for buying sh*t you probably don't need, Amazon .com, is facing backlash for selling a hooded sweatshirt that you absolutely, definitely don't need. No one needs this sweatshirt. Unless it's for a performance art piece where you take off this hoodie and then burn it in a fire while people cheer. In which case, please feel free to buy 'em all!!!

"Anorexia," it reads. "Like Bulimia, but with self-control."

Unfortunately, 1990's era Lisa Kudrow, I am serious. And so are the potential consequences of the message displayed on this shirt. I hate to be Debbie Downer, but eating disorders affect approximately 30 million people in the U.S. and have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness, according to ANAD.

So it makes sense that people all over Twitter, including doctors and mental health experts, are asking Amazon.com remove the offending shirt.
