JC Penney’s Bad Day All Started With This T-Shirt.

Somewhere in the world of J.C. Penney, a buyer is having a really lousy day… And they should be. Their decision to offer shirts for girls that read: “I’m too pretty to do homework so my brother has to do it for me” wasn’t received so well by the American public.

Somewhere in the world of J.C. Penney, a buyer is having a really lousy day… And they should be. Their decision to offer shirts for girls that read: “I’m too pretty to do homework so my brother has to do it for me” wasn’t received so well by the American public. Was it offensive? Not exactly… maybe a little. Stupid? Ohhhhh Yeah.

The silly attempt at humor extended beyond the shirt.  The online catalog description read: Who has time for homework when there’s a new Justin Bieber album out? She’ll love this tee that’s just as cute and sassy as she is.

The shirt was an online-only item, and I can’t imagine anyone would want to buy the thing, but no worries – internet users cried out at the ridiculousness of the shirt’s copy, ran to the J.C. Penney facebook page to rant, and presto! The store had a PR crisis on it’s hands as media started a callin’.

Kate Coultas of Corporate Communications tells the Village Voice: “We are not happy about the shirt! We’re looking into it right now, to find out how it happened. It was only online, not available in stores, and we have removed it from the site.”

JCP didn’t stop there… they released a statement, that includes: We agree that the “Too pretty” t-shirt does not deliver an appropriate message, and we have immediately discontinued its sale. Our merchandise is intended to appeal to a broad customer base, not to offend them. We would like to apologize to our customers and are taking action to ensure that we continue to uphold the integrity of our merchandise that they have come to expect.”

That brings us back to a handful of people who are having a rather sad lunch break today as they sit and think about where it all went wrong. There, there, JCP buyers, someone else will offend the people of this great country soon and your newspaper headline will be tomorrow’s birdcage lining before long!

These ladies are here for the wham, bam thank you glam.

While each housewives franchise carries its own unique sense of opulence, it seems like the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills really take glam to the next level. That’s partly why we love those Beverly Hills biddies so much though! They spare no expense for their lavish parties, breathtaking vacations and especially, their over the top looks. Erika Girardi alone has admitted to spending $40,000 a month to keep her appearance looking so radiant. It seems like with each passing year the ladies take glam to the next level and this season is no different. In a sneak peek released by Bravo, Denise Richards, Garcille Beauvais, Dorit Kemsley, Kyle Richards, Sutton Stracke, Erika Girardi, Lisa Rinna and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave all look like a million bucks in their season 10 reunion looks.

Check out the glamorous looks below!

Lots of seniors missed out on prom night this year due to the school closures that occurred when the coronavirus began sweeping the globe.

Peyton Manker created a coronavirus-inspired prom dress after her dad told her about an interesting scholarship contest. The contest guidelines were simple; make an entire prom dress out of only duct tape. The Illinois senior spent over 400-hours detailing her masterpiece and created shoes, a mask, a purse and accessories to match. The dress is filled with intricate portraits displaying frontline workers, people in masks and even a tribute to the graduating class. Her purse is designed to look like a coronavirus cell, which you know we will see on every shelf at H&M in six months. No word on whether Manker won the scholarship but her dress has definitely caught the attention of the internet.
