Kurt Cobain Suicide-Note Shirts Pulled After Outcry
Clothes decorated with the image of Kurt Cobain‘s suicide note have been pulled after public outcry.
Baseball shirts and tank tops, printed with the a copy of Cobain’s hand-written last words, were briefly available via the Etsy site before online protests broke out. (Here’s a link to the page where the items were previously being sold.) A particularly active thread on Reddit deemed the entire enterprise “sick and obnoxious on every level.”
The yanked shirts then briefly showed up on eBay, apparently through a Thailand-based seller named Nuchyk, but that sale has since also been terminated.
Cobain died in April 1994, memorably quoting a Neil Young lyric as part of his farewell. He and the rest of his bandmates in Nirvana were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year. ‘Montage of Heck,’ a documentary on Cobain’s life featuring previously unheard music, is due in May.
