Today in controversial items found at Urban Oufitters: Depression tops! Shoppers complained that the crop top with the word "depression" covering it in different sized fonts "was trying to make illness into a fashion statement," according to Buzzfeed. Major religious and ethnic groups everywhere reported that they're "just glad it wasn't us this time." (Disclaimer: Not a real quote.) UO tweeted that they'd take the item down and the item is currently listed as "sold out." [Buzzfeed]
