Forever 21 is the latest major retailer to come out with a completely cringe-inducing item. The offensive men's shirt, plastered with the line, "Don't Say Maybe If You Want To Say No," sure reads like a rape-rationalizing slogan. Any article of clothing festooned with rape inferences is just unacceptable, but this particular item adds insult to injury, thanks to the shirt's victim-blaming undertones.
“Forever 21 strives to exemplify the highest ethical standards and takes feedback and product concerns very seriously," a Forever 21 representative told Refinery29. "With regards to the T-shirt in question, upon receiving feedback from our customers, we took immediate action to have it removed from our website. We sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended by the product.”

F21's Non Response
Ploy for publicity or not, this is disgusting. Never stepping foot in an F21 again. Sorry or the repost, mods!
