Vineyard Vines from Martha’s Vineyard (a location teeming with rich citizens) has made a tee that takes a jab at the Occupy Wall Street movement. It’s creative, but it will definitely get many people upset because of it’s obvious pun on what thousands gathered together for. The t-shirt has a small, pink whale with the word “occupy” on the breast pocket and the image on the tee is a person sleeping in a tent with signs around that say: “more ice for the cooler!”, “more time on the water!” and “more cheeseburgers”. The person seems to be resting on a tropical island with its own guitar, sinking sun, sand and sandals. Nice spot for the rich to be hanging out, but hey, they can afford it!
There are already many who are getting upset about this t-shirt since it shows a lack of concern of what OWS stands for. The tee is basically saying that the rich are going to enjoy their money and life, while the OWS folks can sit around and protest all day. What OWS stands for is the corruption that is occurring in the United States and protesting how the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.
You can of course purchase one of these tees for yourself, but I wouldn’t suggest wearing it in public in New York City. Unless, of course, you don’t wish to live any longer. What do you think about this? Tell us your opinions on this touchy subject.
