Bad Fashion: T-Shirt With Kurt Cobain’s Suicide Note Printed On It Pulled From Etsy; Available On Ebay

Poor taste.

Just when you think Urban Outfitters and American Apparel have cornered the market on wildly offensive clothing and accessories, this little number popped up on eBay. The baseball tee—“handmade” by a retailer in Thailand—features a print of Kurt Cobain’s 1994 suicide letter. A similar item was available on Etsy (see the listing here), but this has since been removed.

As of this afternoon, 18 of the shirts—which sell for $25.19— have been sold. It goes without saying that turning a suicide note into a t-shirt is unspeakably vulgar and insensitive. Which means it’s only a matter of time before the Dov Charneys of the world start copying it.
