Editor’s Note: This post has been updated with a statement from designer Jess Sluder, an update from Lululemon, Luluemon’s CEO, as well as Trevor Fleming.
Canada-based art director for Lululemon Trevor Fleming and California artist Jess Sluder are being called out on social media for a T-shirt design that many in the Asian community found offensive.
While a shirt that says “Not My Problem” may indicate a hint of implied indifference of its wearer, nothing could be further from the truth in the case of a Vietnamese mom who was seen sporting such tee while doing charity work.
The unfortunate gaffe was highlighted by her daughter in a social media post that has received quite the attention on the popular Facebook group, “Subtle Asian Traits.”
A Vietnamese dad won over the hearts of thousands of Facebook users for his incredibly sweet yet subtle gesture of love for his wife, even when they are apart.
In a post on the popular Facebook group “subtle asian traits,” member Nhi Pham shared how her father expresses his deep love for his mom in his own sweet way.
A mother from Illinois was left shocked and speechless after receiving the shirt she had ordered from China’s AliExpress for her daughter with an unexpected print on the front that read: “F*ck The Police.”
Kelsey Dawn Williamson ordered the shirt on AliExpress on May 10 for $5. The ad on the website names the shirt as “Kids Two Frog Riding Design Baby Boys/Girl TShirt Kids Funny Short Sleeve Tops Children Cute T-Shirt,” which shows an image of the iconic children’s book characters Frog and Toad.
