Yeah, that happens sometimes.  I remember the time my Child Porn For Peace poster got me arrested even despite the fact that I'd just lost a relative in Iraq a few weeks before.  Man, what an injustice.

COMPLETE STATEMENT FROM KING OF PRUSSIA MALL
"King of Prussia Mall would first like to express its condolences to the young women regarding the loss of their mother. King of Prussia Mall is a proud supporter of breast cancer awareness and other important causes however, the mall is first and foremost a family destination. Certain words and images, whether obvious or suggested, spoken or written on clothing, are considered profane and can offend many people. In keeping with the mall's Code of Conduct, security approached the women who were first asked respectfully to remove their caps and when they refused, were asked to leave. King of Prussia Mall is dedicated to providing a family-friendly atmosphere for all our shoppers and such profanity is not tolerated."
-Robert Hart, Mall Manager


Oh Please. The word looks like FUAK. Also stores in the mall have items for sale with uncensored words all over them but that's no problem for the mall manager. Pay a visit to the Spencer's and the Urban Outfitters stores in that mall. Why hasn't he asked them to leave? Oh right, because he makes money from them. Fark road trip. Let's have 500 people all show up in these hats and shirts and watch the hilarity commence.
 
2013-05-22 12:50:36 PM
Oh, and this mall cop should lose his job for the way he spoke to them:

Security approached and asked them to take the hats off or leave.

"I said, 'I'm not leaving. I spend money here and I'm not going to leave,'" said Zakia.

"He said, 'You know what? Shut your mouth. That was your cue to stop shopping.'
So I removed my hat," she said. The back and forth, caught on camera, still got the women kicked out.
 
2013-05-22 12:54:32 PM
Ok, that's pretty f*cked up. Really.

Walker: Oh Please. The word looks like FUAK.


Yep.

I'm going to guess it has something to do with location.  I doubt this woman was buying her funeral outfit at Spencer Gifts.

Yeah, memo to the officials at King of Prussia Mall: My business is going elsewhere.  You can thank yourselves for that.

So when can we expect a call from Susan G. Komen's lawyers for using the ribbon, the pink color, and cancer all on the same piece of apparel?
 
2013-05-22 01:05:19 PM
Zakia, Makia, and Tasha walk into a mall wearing hats with profanity on them.

Which one makes a scene when the mall cop asks them to ditch the hats?
 
2013-05-22 01:05:35 PM
Fu𐑙k

It actually stands for, "Failing to Understand our Capacity for Kindness." It's an acronym.
Those mall cops should feel pretty silly, now.

Irrelevant. The mall manager's statement read: King of Prussia Mall is dedicated to providing a family-friendly atmosphere for all our shoppers and such profanity is not tolerated.

Except #1 it wasn't profanity, and #2 actual profanity is tolerated in the stores. It doesn't matter where the shopper's location was. If profanity is permitted in Spencers, then his statement is contradicting itself. He said profanity is not tolerated in the mall period. Spencers is in the mall last time I checked.

Yes, stores in that mall probably sell Speedos and cigarettes, but I wouldn't want people using those in the mall either.  Bottom line: some people don't want rude words in their faces.

Private property... move along.

Also, I love that, in memory of their dear mother, they're wearing a hat with a rude word on it.  That's real... stupid.  Will they wear those to the funeral?  Why not?  Oh, they want the funeral to be quiet dignified?  Just like the mall used to be?

People wearing hats and shirts with rude words on it destroys something - it destroys the VALUE known as "mall where I can shop in peace with my family".  A value, boys and girls, is something we need to live or be happy.  People who destroy values are what we call evil.  The fact that these folks are too foolish to know that is irrelevant.

If I asked someone to leave my property and their response was "I'm not leaving", I would give up and allow them to stay.

Oh wait, no i wouldn't. They'd be farking arrested. Bunch of entitled jackholes.
 
2013-05-22 01:14:50 PM
hats that had a one-word profanity - with a pink ribbon substituting for the third letter

Ah, freedom of the farking press.
 
2013-05-22 01:15:59 PM
On the one hand, people are free to wear what they want, even if it makes them look like vulgar guttersnipes.

On the other hand, you're in a place of business, You're expected to have some sense of respectability.

These people are trying to bring in emotion and pity into it. Your mother died. That sucks. Make a sign and put it in your yard (until the HOA cites violations).

Don't be an entitled biatch because the rest of the world won't let you mourn (metaphoricalily) loudly and publically.

Life sucks, wear a helmet.

Who knows? Maybe Mom was buried in a shirt like that. If I ever die of cancer (hope not), I'll request that I am buried in one.
 
2013-05-22 01:16:20 PM
While I sympathize with the sentiment, how hard would it have been to express it tastefully? Not in the sense of having hats saying "Darn Cancer" or something, but shutting the hell up and mourning like you have a shred of dignity?

Oh no, a bad word censored on a shirt and hat!  The horror!  I'm sure that mall doesn't sell cds with explicit lyrics or movies with violence and profanity in them either!  Zero Tolerance!

Show me one kid who is old enough to figure out what that hat is saying, and I'll show you a kid that already uses that word regularly.

But, since they are black, I guess that does reduce the property "values" of the mall, amirite?

If your fragile mind is offended by the mere mention of a 'rude word' as you call it (seriously, you sound like you're a six-year-old using terms like that), then maybe you shouldn't go outside into the big scary world at all. The mall is supposed to be 'quiet and dignified?' Are you kidding? What world do you live in where the mall needs to be cleansed of every unsavory thought or image to shop there? The funny thing is that it wasn't even a bad word. Your mind has to fill in the blanks, meaning you were the one who thought of the bad word.

That being said, the mall has every right to show these people the door. They have chosen the patronage of prudes and their children over people who were just trying to have a sense of humor about an awful disease. Hopefully, it will reflect negatively in their sales numbers but I doubt it will.

Are you implying that they lacked the freedom to print the word if they so chose?  Voluntary restraint is not the same thing as lack of freedom.

Your argument might carry a little more weight if they were blaring the explicit music over the mall speakers or have TVs everywhere showing the explicit profanity/violence.

I've never been to a mall that does that.

2013-05-22 01:27:47 PM
I'm sorry for their mom's death, truly. Cancer is a hell of a way to go, but wearing an obscene t-shirt in public is not going to bring their mom back.

It *is* in King Of Prussia.
They named the town after a dead king of a dead country.
Those folks don't like to get over anything.
In 1960, you wouldn't see a person of color in that town.
Yeah, Pennsylvania is full of racists.
But you knew that.
