Too much?

A menswear company is under fire for their recent release of sweatshirts with bullet holes in them representing schools that have been victims of mass shootings. Many think they are capitalizing on the massacres that happened at these schools. Others say it's just a way to raise awareness. 

The sweatshirts have multiple holes in them that look like gunshot holes with the names of schools where the shootings took place.

"There are so many ways to use fashion and clothing to make sociopolitical commentary — this isn’t it," one commenter wrote on the post showing the picture of the Sandy Hook sweatshirt. "How do you think the parents who saw their children’s clothing with bullet holes through them feel seeing this? Comforted? Empowered?"

 

What do you think? Insensative or not?
