This. And I think it's blowing up because this is this first time a lot of people are hearing about this. I think a lot of kids shop there because its cool and have no clue about the awful part of it. Shopping there just because its cool even though its a **** t-shirt for $50 is messed up in itself, but is a separate (but related) issue.
