Racist T-shirt man forced to remove badly made racist t-shirt
We all love a good t-shirt that urges us to ‘Keep Calm and Have A Nice Pint of Lager’ or a personalised ‘Kiss The Chef’ apron. Oh how we laugh when our mate Linda makes us wear ‘CHYLAMIDIA ON TOUR, HALKIDIKI 2013’ t-shirts for her hen night getaway. It’s a bit of harmless fun, innit? Harmless, tedious, arse achingly pedestrian fun.
But T-shirt printer Matthew Taylor of Newport, South Wales has taken his products to a new ‘hilarious’ level with his new range of RACIST tees. You’ll fall over laughing when you see his latest creation – a stylish yellow on black affair that screams: ‘OBEY OUR LAWS, RESPECT OUR BELIEFS, OR GET OUT OF OUR COUNTRY.’ Buy it for the penniless Slovakian cleaning lady in your life just to see the look on her face!
As a racist, Taylor inevitably insists they’re not racist, by mumbling something about Lee Rigby and saying ‘It’s not meant to be offensive, and that’s not why I produced it. It’s just what I believe…I don't see it as racist, because it's meant to be a statement about any race.’
The police say the t-shirt incites racial hatred and have ordered him to remove it. But Welsh MP David Davies defended Taylor, saying: ‘It is a sensitive time, but I can see his point of view. You should not be in this country if you are not prepared to obey the laws…I think the vast majority of people of all races would agree with that. So I don’t think it is a racist matter.’
(Still TOTALLY racist.)
