Here’s breaking news on the Target/Sully’s rumpus.
Target’s sleepless PR gal Erika Winkels sent the hardreading staff this update at 12:43 this morning:
Target introduced the Local Pride program to celebrate local communities, including our neighbors in Boston. We have a deep appreciation for design, including respecting the design rights of others. We are in the process of discontinuing this t-shirt and will not carry it in future installments of the program.
We’re not sure which t-shirt Target is in the process of discontinuing, but the retail chain should definitely consider dumping its Free Brady knockoff, which got Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker in ice water yesterday (via Boston Daily’s Kyle Clauss).
Anyone got a Free Baker t-shirt in the works?
More, we’re sure, to come.
P.S. It appears Target has dumped the Free Brady t-shirt, but kept the Green Monstah ripoff.
