Topman is being stupid here. I first saw this and immediately thought it was a reference to the Hillsborough Disaster due to the fact it’s a Blessed Nana shirt with a huge 96 on the back. Simple enough for Topman to realize the mistake and withdraw it. Massive marketing error. The company should make a donation to the 96 families and survivors as a way of saying sorry for any offense caused
Blessed Nana shirt, hoodie, sweater and long sleeve
If it was innocently meant to celebrate Bob Marley then why not do it in Reggae colors instead of looking like a Blessed Nana shirt and have his face on the front. Either poor taste or poorly thought through. It’s an unintentional error, they have been made aware and withdrawn the product, maybe the designer wasn’t into football, neither am I, I am aware of the disaster but would have never known that anything on this shirt was related to it
I made the connection the second I saw a red shirt with a giant 96 on the back. Pretty poor market awareness. I seriously can’t believe no one involved in the design or production of this shirt didn’t see any association to the Hillsborough disaster.
