Fashion Brand Selling Mass Shooting-Themed Hoodies With Bullet Holes In It

Did these clothes serve their purpose?

The world can disagree on many things from abortion to gay pride. But one thing we can always relate to tragedy and loss. That is why the worst way anyone can be during sensitive times is to create a fashion statement based on a bloody event.

Fashion brand Bstroy recently revealed their new Spring 2020 collection, featuring controversial hoodies. Those clothes look normal until you notice the names of schools where infamous mass shootings took place. Simply those names have invoked a strong statement. But that’s not all – Bstroy decided to add bullet holes on these hoodies.

Green Lemon has compiled pictures of these controversial hoodies during a fashion show.

The fashion idea quickly went viral, receiving mixed responses.

Brick Owens, co-founder, and designer of Bstroy releases a statement along with his posts of the Spring collection:

“Sometimes life can be painfully ironic. Like the irony of dying violently in a place, you considered to be a safe, controlled environment, like school. We are reminded all the time of life’s fragility, shortness, and unpredictability yet we are also reminded of its infinite potential.”

While mass shootings remain to be a major concern to the citizens of the US, little has been done to prevent them. October 1, 2017 marks as the deadliest shooting based on CNN’s report where 58 people were randomly killed from a man at the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Even youngsters have been involved. A student killed 32 people at Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007. Since 2019, there have been 19 mass shootings and more people are asking for gun controls to be exercised.

In 1994, Federal Assault Weapons Ban reduced the number of deaths caused by guns down to 89 deaths out of 12 incidents. But since it was lifted from 2004 to 2014, 302 people have died. On Parkland’s mass shooting, the perpetrator has been reported multiple times, yet a red flag was not given to detain or remove firearms from the man.

Survivors and family members of the victims were enraged at the ‘disgusting’ design.

But others think this is the push they need to exact gun control.
