1. A Texas-based car decal company called Hornet Signs has recently been accused of promoting rape culture.
2. Users began attacking the company online over their decal, furious that Hornet Signs would think something like the abuse and kidnapping of women is something to joke about.
3. Hornet Signs put out an official statement, saying that they wanted to use the controversy to help victims of abuse:
Let’s embrace the situation and take this opportunity to help victims of abuse all over this great country. Take the outrage and turn it into positive solutions. We have not profited by one penny on this but go to our website to find out who can! Take our challenge and let’s be proactive in bringing awareness and finding solutions. Go to our facebook page and share with us what others are doing to bring awareness and solutions to this disturbing social issue. We have read every comment between Friday and now. We have seen a tremendous amount of negativity but with that somewhere there has to be just as much positive activity! The negativity still keeps the issue in front of us but we want to try and convert that into positive solutions.
