Old Navy artist T-shirt spawns fury: Company Discontinues Product After Backlash

Old Navy is getting backlash about their new line of T-shirts that “discourage” artists, according to critics.

The company’s design of a white shirt with “young aspiring artist” printed on is not sitting well with some people. The shirt has a line through the word artist and is replaced with other professions like astronaut or president.

Some art enthusiasts say they are offended by the design of the shirt because it teaches kids at a young age that art has no value.

Old Navy says it apologizes for the design and plans to pull the shirt off store shelves and no longer sell it online.

This latest design controversy is just one of the many this year that major retailers have faced backlash for like Target and even the Children’s Place.
