The Outrage Police Strikes Again! What They’re Trying to Ban This Time Might Be Their Best Work Yet!

Rita Richardson is an avid JC Penney’s shopper. She is also a member of the outrage police. The Florida woman was so offended that the store was marketing a tank top that says, “Suns Out Guns Out” that she sprung into action and called her local TV station in attempt to halt sales of the shirt.

Richardson believed the shirt was advocating for gun violence. But it is commonly recognized that the guns referenced on the shirt are muscles, not actual guns. Like many in the outrage police, humor is not her strong suit.

“I just thought it was sad that a major retailers like JC Penney would want its brand associated with something that advocates, glorifies gun violence.”

Richardson’s concerns are mockable in nature as she was so offended by a benign shirt in a store flyer that she felt compelled to get media involved to warn the public. It must have taken some serious restraint for this reporter to keep a straight face when interviewing Richardson.

How would you have reacted to Rita Richardson’s concern? Please comment below.

    I am guessing she is single, and, hopefully, not driving….

  2. Abby says:

    Honey, bless your heart! You need to GET A LIFE, GET A HOBBY. Something, anything. Butthurt is not a hobby. Btw, if you’re from the South, you’ll know that “bless your heart” is sarcasm. Suck it up lady!

  3. Steve says:

    She needs to get a life!!!

  4. LaVerne says:

    The woman needs to get a life! Almost anything you can think of offend someone. When I feel offended at things that just don’t matter for life, liberty, etc – I look the other way, don’t listen, and so on.

  5. Rowena says:

    I’m 70, I’m not up on the latest fads or slang, but even I knew what the shirt was referring to. Maybe this old gal should check things out a little more before embarrassing herself by showing her ignorance.

  6. Carolyn says:

    HONEY YOU ARE JUST NOT WITH IT. NOTHING WRONG WITH THE SHIRT. AND YES YOU NEED TO GET OUT IN THE PUBLIC MORE. EVERYONE IS OFFENDED ABOUT SOMETHING YOU CANNOT PLEASE EVERYONE ANYMORE SO IF YOU DO NOT LIKE BURN THE JC PENNY AD AND GO ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS LIKE YOU SHOULD, IF I WANT TO BUY THE SHIRT IT IS MY PERSONAL BUSINESS NOT YOURS OR ANYONE ELSES, GET IT , I SURE HOPE SO FOR GODS SAKE TEND TO YOUR OWN .

  7. Jeff says:

    also, an image of a flexed bicept might have prevented the misunderstanding. The shirt gets a C-.

  8. Jeff says:

    She should get out more. A slang reference can ellude those who aren’t atune to the domain of the jargon. It’s just another funny situation that enlightenment can (hopefully) resolve.

  9. Michael says:

    what about my rights, to buy this shirt???

  10. Linda says:

    Put on your big girl panties and look the other way. It has nothing to do with gun violence. You just can’t fix this particular kind of stupid…

    1. Harley says:

      This type of person simply does not deserve respect … Just one look at her, leads one to believe that she is not the brightest light bulb in the room while a second look reveals that she does indeed wear BIG girl panties … Obviously the size of a person’s underwear is no indication of brain size …

  11. Mike says:

    DA That’s a military slogan for gunnars.Stupid is as stupid does.

  12. Tina says:

    She and other liberals need to grow up and stop getting their knickers in a knot everyone something offends them. I am offended by their whiny ass complaining but don’t go around acting like a diva.

  13. Carmen says:

    Why is there always someone trying to get seen in this world. They always find something to try causing hate and discontent. Is it that their lives are so boring they have nothing more to do.

  14. Larry says:

    OK Lady you got your 15 mins of fame now sit down and STFU

  15. Brian says:

    The shirt also looks like a Phx Suns basketball shirt with those colors.

  16. Michele says:

    She is stupid. The shirt is not referring to actual guns.

  17. Terry says:

    Some people live just to be offended by something!

  18. Joey says:

    She is as stupid as this woman. Take a listen to this idiot ranting about a deer crossing sign. You might then understand, just how stupid people like the woman in the article really are!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgGSLybhFOc

  19. Lester says:

    The reporter should have laughed at her and hung up on her.

  20. Renay says:

    Appears this Fruit Bat has been suckling some pretty potent fermented grapes.

  21. Christine says:

    Wanted her 15 minutes of fame! Just shows how narrow minded she is.

  22. Gary says:

    Is this woman Stupid or what? It; summer, the sun is out Guns out That means Show off your Biceps (upper arms) You dumbazz stoopeedoo

  23. Rn says:

    Must be from the shallow end of the gene pool. Or have absolutely nothing better to do with her life.

    How sad………….

  24. Mattie says:

    Tell her to get a life.

  25. Rick says:

    What a friggin moron. I want HER banned!

  26. Chelsea says:

    This lady really shouldn’t be out walking around with the general public. Even if it was pointed at guns that doesn’t mean she has to buy it. People need to get off their high horse and realize the world doesn’t revolve around. Them or pleasing them! GROW UP!!

  27. John says:

    YOU CAN’T FIX STUPID !
