Alleged ´Holocaust T-Shirt´ Company Responds to Controversy (INN) ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS) By Rachel Hirshfeld 04/23/12)Source: http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/155042#.T5V8ebOO2So INN} ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS INN} ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS Articles-Index-TopPublishers-Index-Top
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: http://woodwood.dk/store/product/category-men-tees/kellog-tee

“I am sorry if anyone was offended seeing the shirt, it was of course never our intention to hurt any feelings with this.
