People Are Pissed Old Navy Is Selling These Baby Shirts

Didn't realize aspiring to be an artist was a bad thing?

Posted on

Twitter and Facebook are lighting up with responses from artists and non-artists alike.

Seems @OldNavy thinks discouraging kids from a career in the arts is funny. #FAIL

@OldNavy relies on actors (aka artists) to sell their clothing...and then insults them. #oldnavyfail

@OldNavy you don't have to insult the creative community just to sell a Tshirt


Have you seen this? @OldNavy is clearly ignorant to the value of young #artists in our world. You lost me #oldnavy

Some designers are even redesigning the shirts in response.

Made this as a response to Old Navy and their horrible shirt concepts. #oldnavy #artists

#oldnavy encourages aspiring artists to be presidents instead; what about the president who wants to be an artist?



Old Navy has responded to BuzzFeed with this statement:

“At Old Navy we take our responsibility to our customers seriously. We would never intentionally offend anyone, and we are sorry if that has been the case. Our toddler tees come in a variety of designs including tees that feature ballerinas, unicorns, trucks and dinosaurs and include phrases like, “Free Spirit.” They are meant to appeal to a wide range of aspirations. With this particular tee, as a result of customer feedback, we have decided to discontinue the design and will work to remove the item from our stores.”

– Debbie Felix, Old Navy spokesperson
