Kitson, a boutique clothing company based in L.A., released a line of T-shirts called “the designer drugs collection,” angering many for its supposed promotion of drug use.
In response to the outrage, Kitson posted the following statement from the designer of the line, Brian Lichtenberg, on their Facebook page:
Of course Twitter lit up about the shirts:
Actress Kristen Johnston, star of the “The Exes” and formerly on “3rd Rock from the Sun”, tweeted:
Hey @KitsonLA do you really think this s**t is funny? Millions are dying, & u want to make $ off it. SHAME ON YOU
The company responded to one of her tweets threatening to get the authorities involved:
@kjothesmartass Ms. Johnston do not threaten our customers. Please remove this threat or we will forward (cont) http://t.co/5d0K0OMiWt
Johnston then said she deleted her comment:
“I deleted it @KitsonLA. Now please remove the clothing you sell that makes a joke of the drug epidemic.”
To which Kitson fired back that they were not responsible for the drug situation in the U.S.:
@kjothesmartass Next time bully those directly responsible for the drug situation in america: Drug dealers. Not Kitson.
GOOD NEWS: Lindsay Lohan is a fan:
