After Urban Outfitters designed a t-shirt marked with the words “Eat Less” on the front, Sophia Bush has decided to boycott the entire fashion outlet.
The One Tree Hill actress has always been a strong promoter of healthy body images for women, worldwide. Now, however, she is taking her cause to a new level by declaring a war against Urban Outfitters.
In an open letter to Urban Outfitters which was posted on her blog, Bush wrote:
“You should issue a public apology, and make a hefty donation to a women’s organization that supports those stricken with eating disorders. I am sickened that anyone, on any board, in your gigantic company would have voted ‘yes’ on such a thing, let alone enough of you to manufacture an item with such a hurtful message. It’s like handing a suicidal person a loaded gun. You should know better.”
Sophia stands close to her belief and assures others that she will not allow Urban Outfitters to make a profit off of “anorexia- promoting t-shirts“.
What do you think about the t-shirt Montreal? Will you be joining Sophia in her boycott against the store?
