Utah Town Wants Store to Take Down Offensive Shirts
OREM, Utah (AP) — Municipal leaders in a conservative Utah city have sent a letter to the national clothing store PacSun telling them that a recent display of T-shirts featuring pictures of scantily dressed models in provocative poses was offensive.
The Daily-Herald of Provo reports that the mayor and most of the city council in Orem sent the letter Tuesday.
The letter comes just weeks after the Orem city attorney decided not to press charges against PacSun under the city’s code that prohibits anyone from putting “explicit sexual material” on public display.
The issue was raised Judy Cox became so upset about the “indecent” T-shirts that she bought all of them and filed a complaint with the city. Cox says she’s pleased city officials sent the letter.
PacSun was not immediately available for comment.
