This is Richard Hayne, President and CEO of Urban Outfitters. He’s also a supporter of Rick Santorum and donated over $13,000 to him. He’s against gay marriage and abortion.
His company pulled a pro-gay shirt back in 08, they also blatantly ripped off an Etsy designers work, featured a t-shirt for women that said “eat less” and most recently had a card with a “tranny” slur on in.
Why do you shop at this store? I imagine because you weren’t aware of these facts. Now you are, so stop shopping there.
I don’t support Urban, Forever, and I’m trying to let go of H+M. Moving on to a life of thrift stores, DIY and local designers of color.

I no longer shop at Urban or thrift at the Salvation Army because they are against gay marriage as well. Chik-fila, Autozone.. there are a whole host of places I don’t support because they don’t support me.
