The ‘Wood Wood’ Company issued a response to the alleged anti-Semitic
T-shirt featuring a six-pointed star, resembling the uniform Jews
were forced to wear during the Holocaust.
The statement, received via e-mail to Arutz 7, read as follows:
"Dear friends, as some of you are aware, several news sites have been
writing about our ‘Kellog´ T-shirt, which feature an image of a six-
pointed star, allegedly similar to the yellow badge Jews were ordered
to wear by the German Nazis.
“First of all the graphic is not the Star of David, and i can assure
you that this is in no way a reference to Judaism, Nazism or the
holocaust. The graphic came from working with patchwork and geometric
patterns for our spring/summer collection ´State of Mind´.
“However when we received the prototype of this particular style we
did recognize the resemblance, which is why we decided not to include
the star patch on the final production T-shirt. I assume the image
people have reacted to come from Urban Outfitters´ web site. This
must be a photograph of an early sample, which is of course an error.
Here is the actual T-shirt as it is in stores:
“I am sorry if anyone was offended seeing the shirt, it was of course
never our intention to hurt any feelings with this.
